slayerjunkie Posted December 5, 2006 Report Share Posted December 5, 2006 (edited) Hi, this is my first guitar project ever. I have an Ibanez RG570 which has 3 pickups, a 5 way pickup selector, 1 volume knob and 1 tone knob. I bought an EMG KFK pickup set (Kerry King's signature pickup set). It comes with EMG 81 and 85 pickups, 2 volume knobs and 2 tone knobs (1 for each pickup), PA2 gain booster, and a 9 volt battery hookup thingee. My dilemma is: To properly install the full KFK set properly it needs 5 holes in total (4 for vol/tone knobs, 1 for gain booster) and room in the back for the 9 volt battery but my ibanez only has 2 holes (vol/tone knobs). It appears the guitar will need some major routering and drilling to make it have the 5 holes needed for installation. My question is: Is it possible to make the back cavity hole bigger or make more holes to add this kit? How hard is it? Can you point me to directions. I've done my searching and reading on these forums but I am too noob'ish to know what to look for and don't understand what I am reading. I am at the point where I think I will have to just to keep the 2 existing holes and not even install the 2nd set of vol/tone knobs or the gain booster. What a dissapointment!! :-( :-( :-( Thanks and sorry for my noobishness! Edited December 5, 2006 by slayerjunkie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
