EMG-707 or Duncan Distortion? - Which pickup is best?
I'm looking for personal suggestions on this one...
I want to install either an EMG-707 active pickup (the model used by Dino Cazares of Fear Factory) or a Seymour Duncan Distorion pickup in the bridge position on my RG7620. Has anyone had experience with either of these? Which would you recommend?
Pricewise, the EMG is about $120 and the Duncan is about $75. However, the EMG would cost more to get installed because of its active design.
Speaking of active design, is it a pain in the ass to have a battery in your guitar? I hear these must be changed every 3-6 months.
Let me know what you think the best bet might be. Also, if you have any other suggestions for a HIGH OUTPUT 7-string bridge pickup, I'd love to hear them. I really need something hotter, brighter and higher output than the Dimarzio "whatever 7" model that's in there now. (It's a stock 1998 RG7620.)
Thanks in advance!
