    Have just bought a brand new Legend Custom for the bargain price of £235. Its fantasticly made. ....but i am used to a bit more grunt and the HZs even with the tone boost are well...a bit lacking. I have been looking at straight replacements with the EMG 35 DC looking like a good replacement.
    Is it possible to directly fit one in the bridge position and keep the toneboost circuit for the neck pickup?

    I don't remember if the Legend comes standard with vol/vol or vol/blend controls, but you'll have to wire it up as vol/vol and use a 25k pot for the volume of the active pickup.

    Regarding the pickup fit, yes, it will fit just fine. EMG 4-string soapbar shapes (1.5" x 3.5") are very common among many manufacturers, so you don't have to limit yourself to just EMG replacements.
