Arrow Quick question about Dimarzio pickups!

Hey guys,
Im planning to get a PAF Joe on the neck and a Evolution on the bridge.

My question is;
Can i install em together with no mods , just .. lets say removing the old ones from a RG model and stick these in there.. would that work??

I have absolutly no knowladge about pickups and wiring. I wanted just to make sure there is not gona be a problem ... (coz they run a different Ks .. output ect...)

Thanks in advance fellas!

Re: Quick question about Dimarzio pickups!

Technically yes you can just take off the old pickups and solder the new one. When I have pickups change out of my guitar, I always have them redo the wiring. if it is only one pickup I would do it myself, if it is both I will have someone do it clean.

It is pretty easy. Read the diagrams carefully until you think you understand it before doing anything. Then when you see it for yourself it will be much easier.

Re: Quick question about Dimarzio pickups!

1. be super careful when you're soldering, you don't want to burn your fingers
2. unsolder the old wires. do not clip them.
3. the iby switches don't have a high threshold for pain. don't overheat them, or you'll find youself needing a new switch.
4. Dimarzio tech support is extraordinarily knowledgeable and happy to help you with any questions about what wire to solder where.
