    of course. They will go into anything if you have Active Routes and the cavity is large enough for battery and all the pots/wires needed to use them as intended.

    Can't do it. Carvin wood cancels out magnetic fields.

    wow, okay thanks man, I almost bought them. I didn't realize Carvin wood was the magnetic polarity reversing kind. I bet you one baddass shreddah huh?

    Can you post a picture of the pickups/cavities? I just recently found that Fishman's (the passive size) barely won't fit into my DC7x.

    no idea. get the pickup measurements from fishman, then measure your pickup cavities. I don't know if your guitar has a battery box installed or not, but that might make your life a bit easier if you choose to go the 9v route.
