Ibanez EDC700 replacement pu's

  1. I am thinking about upgrading the pick-ups in my Ibanez EDC700, I like the playability of the bass, but would like to have another sound: new PU's thus.

    I have no experience whatsoever with doing this. I've been looking at EMG, SD Basslines, but all the brands seem to have 2 screwholes for attaching the PU to the body, whereas the pu's on the Ibanez have 3 (2 on one part, 1 on the other). Now, the body of the Ibanez is luthite, and I don't know how well that responds to drilling holes. Anyone have any imput on this?

    Also, when choosing pu's, can I use different types for neck- and bridge pu, or is it better to have 2 of the same type?

    Thanks in advance
