    Is it pretty simple; you just screw out the old and screw the new ones in? Or is there alot of complicated wiring stuff?

    Sorry I put this in two forums, didn't know which one it would belong.

    Complicated wiring stuff.

    Really, it's not horribly complicated, but it does require a little research.

    I think the new EMG's don't require soldering. They come with this fancy clip on stuff now. So, if you're planning on doing a pickup swap, you might want to go that route.
