    If it has the quick-connect system, it's a direct swap: take off strings, take out pickups, plug in new pickups, put strings back on, adjust pickup height to your liking, play!

    Cheers Jerm.

    Those were my thoughts initially, thanks for the response on this.

    The new EMG pickups with "H" at the end are for "normal" routes, as in not the infamous soapbar 707/Blackout Phase II size.

    Yep. The pickups are a direct swap since both the Blackouts and EMG's have the quick connect system.
