as long as you dont have to kill the body im ok with the pickups. but if you have to go through all that just to put em inthats either an a-hole company owner or a genius a-hole company owner

I have done this. I had to take a file to the corners of the EMGs to make them fit. Not too much, just flatten them out a bit and you should be fine.

The 7 string pickups will require routing. 6 string versions should fit without too many issues.

I'm not a fan of EMGs myself but there are many who love them.

i cant remember if you have to destroy your 6 strings or not for EMG's or not. and i agree with Tank, for some reason, ibanez and active pickups dont mix

I think those active pups sound like crap in a 1570, but your choice...

That applies to 7-strings, but not 6-strings so much I don't think. Covered or EMG/SD style pickups should fit into those cavities fine.

SD makes blackouts that will fit where the stock V7 & V8 pickups are but EMG does not. you will have to tear up the guitar for the EMG's. i dont suggest doing that because if you hate them theres no going back, the wood is gone. so i say go for the seymour duncans. and i dont know if it comes with the battery cavity in there so there MIGHT be routing no matter what you do. if you do the EMG's though theres a 100% chance of routing and (i think) destroying your guitar

Would I have to do any sort of routing to fit EMG's/SD Blackouts into a 1570?
