    my first post let me know if im in the right spot. But im so tired of my EMGs on my Schecter Stiletto Custom 4. I've been thinking about completely redoing the guitar. if i didn't have such a strong emotional connection i would just trade it. I had a G&L L2000 and absolutely loved the tone, so I was thinking about putting the G&L mfd pickups on it. Except i don't know if they'll fit on my guitar. Can anyone give me some insight on if they might fit, and if not some suggestions on what i could get.

    true but what about string spacing and all of that. Im thinking of just getting one for it, and then making a pick guard for it. I've never done anything like this and i just want to cover my bases before blowing money and carving out my guitar

    Talk to SGD Lutherie, that guy can work some miracles if you're patient. He does customs and also a crapload of standard-size pickups that will fit in darn near anything.

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    Part of the problem with Schecter is the crappy 2 band preamp.

    This. Also, it has the HZ's, which have a natural scoop to them. I'd recommend tossing in something like an OBP-3 first and foremost.
