Installing Emg 81 And 85's On A Very Plain Strat.


Recommended Posts

I realize some of you may think that this question has been answered before, but I simply can not find any guides on the internet for installing both a EMG 81 and 85 (basically the ZW setup) onto a completely unmodified Squire Strat. I believe it will require a lot of special work, modifying a pickguard and body and such, but I think it'll be fun project and I like the Strat anyway. I kinda want to be different than everyone else around here with their Vipers and Les Pauls.

Like Maiden said, just order one of these:


If your Squire has a "bathtub" routed body, it's literally a bolt-in mod - if not, you'll have to carve/rout out enough room for the humbuckers in the pickup cavities (and find a place for the battery - usually not a problem). No tricky work, no wiring, no drama. Easy enough? :D
