Active PU's in an RG1570?
 
Would I have to do any sort of routing to fit EMG's/SD Blackouts into a 1570?

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

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.

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

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

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 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.

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
