I would like to install these myself, but I have never installed pickups before. Is this an attainable goal?


If you buy EMGs new, they come with everything you need. You would basically replace all the electronics in the guitar with what comes in the EMG boxes. Each pickup comes with a volume pot, tone pot and capacitor, battery connector and output jack, and of ocurse wiring diagrams for the most common pickup/control layouts.
