I don't think you'll want to leave the stock pickups in there at all, once you have one EMG in you wont use the other stock pickup anymore, because of the difference in sheer quality.

EMG 81/85 plus wires : 150$ ( at the least, unless you get them for a very low price from E-bay ). Having a technician install the both of them could cost you 25-50$, depending on who you have it done from.

Floyd Rose Tremelo ( not a licensed, the real thing ) plus installation : 200$


These modifications you're talking about could cost you quite a bit of money, and if I were you I would sell the Bronze and use that money you were going to spend on upgrades on a guitar that already has them. If you just have to have a B.C. Rich, there are a few Warlocks on Ebay every so often, that someone has already put these things in there.

But if you want to use your Bronze, then replacing the bridge you already have with a Floyd Rose, plus the locking nut, will be a huge hassle and will cost you more money than is practical. You or your technician should be able to just drop the EMG's in.

Now we can justify putting a pair of EMG's into a Bronze.

On E-bay, is where I got my 81/85 set. My 81 was 40$ and my 85 was 80$, and installation was 25$.

Go to EMG's official website to read about how to install a set for one volume, one tone.

Dude, do it! I got a MIM Fat Strat limited edition I ripped all the electronics out of and went SA/SA/85 AND IT ROCKS. AWESOME TONE! One of the best things i've ever done. It's not hard if you can solder and all the info is avail at their site (as was already said).

I've actually played a bronze warlock with emg-81s in it. A friend of mine has it. Sounds OK but the neck feels like shit and is very uncomfortable. I would just wait for a better guitar.

Dude, for the money you'll be spending on the upgrades, you can just go on ebay and get yourself an older NJ series 'lock. Don't waste any more of your time and money on that.
