Replacement pickups for an Epiphone Explorer

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Sanctum, Oct 17, 2002.

  1. So I was thinking I would stick some EMG-HZ's in like I have in my Spector to get the relative same tone (note relative). I figured I could use the same circuit and have two volumes and a stacked bass/treble knob, and just bypass the toggle switch all together.

    However, I dont even see HZ's on EMG's site. I also don't know if the active 9v circuit in my Spector is part of the pickup setup, or a proprietary Spector deal. I know the pickups themselves are passive.

    I'm also not sure if there will be enough room in the tiny control cavity to do much else - like an Aggie preamp. I dont see putting two batteries in there, nor do I really want an 18V system.

    So if anyone can help me or recommend any other suggestions.
