  1. Pickups & wiring
    I recently bought an LTD KH202 off **** and decided to swap the EMG HZ's for EMG 81's but cant figure out how to wire them so that they work with individual volume pots, master tone and a 3 way selector switch that came with the guitar. Can anyone help me out? Many Thanks Ben

    Lately, when I ask for advice I'm thinking lately that I need to take it more and more as a grain of salt. The members here are knowlegeable beyond want but, asking for tone advice is so overwhelming that you can't make heads or tales of it. I'm finding that most of the people with actual...
