yeah, but the zakk wylde set is an 81 and an 85, i just like to know if there is some sort of difference because they said that the zakk wylde pickups are disigned to fit into a Les Paul?

Yeah but if she doesn't have a les paul then it doesn't come with the right hardware.. i'm not sure if the hardware works with any dual humbuckers or what.. I'm getting my triple coil converted to dual humbuckers with the 81 and 85 for 185 bucks.. that includes the pickups the pickgaurd .. all the hardware.. new pots.. new switch.. and labor.. So I don't see the point of paying whatever it costs for just the ZW kit..
