CS6 Pickup swap to EMGs

Postby Jake8773 » Mon Jan 12, 2015 10:42 pm

I am setting out to convert my cs6 from stock c22s to an EMG 81/85 set. I purchased the pickups off ebay but alas no pots or 9V connector was provided.
I am not a tech so I need some help here. What parts do I need to get and any recommendations would be spectacular!

will stock Carvin pots work?

You will need two 25k pots for tone and volume, battery clip, and a stereo output jack to turn tje batteryon. If they are the newer ones with the quick connects you can get the pots and wire harness. Look at emginc.com for details. If they are the older solder type then you will need a capacitor for the tone.

And remember, ElfDude pays five bucks (plus shipping) for poor, homeless castaway C22 pickups! :lol:
