    I plan on getting a custom agile baritone 6 pretty soon here and I'm wondering what pickups to get so the pickup routes will fit an Alumintone Humbucker.

    I'm willing to spend extra for EMG's or any other pickups they offer so that the guitar will have pickup routes that fit the alumitones.

    Should I stick with regular "Cepheus Passive" routes, which I think fit JB sized humbuckers, or go with EMGs?

    According to BK, the Radiator covers are an exact drop-in replacement for EMGs.

    Nice. I will definitely keep those in mind. They sound clear and deep

    6 string pickups should be fairly standardized, although there may be special considerations when the thickness of the pickup is very different.

    Wow interesting, I assumed they were just normal ones with slots in. Could easily have gone wrong planning to passive route a build for BKP radiators haha

    The Alumitone humbucker will replace the EMG units without any modification
