Holy Grail Sounding 7 String P/U's

I was interested in some holy grail sounding pickups for a 7. I love the genuine sound of the lace holy grail pickups. and was wondering if they have any "quacking" 7 string pickups. I know there are no famous 7 string blues players. why not start?

yeah ed roman is pretty much a joke. but he does have a few good points. you gotta take something to learn from everyone. and discard the rest of their crap. but seriously does anyone know? i thought you guys would be 7 string pros with the universes and all

i

I called him because I saw his ad on custom building a Ibanez guitar. I wanted a mahogany body 7 and didnt want a signature korn guitar. he said
" I'm not really taking on any projects right now."
Why?
"I"m just so busy with projects I don't have time to get anything done, I don't have time to even go to the bathroom."
So is there w waiting list, or back order do I have to wait a few months or what?
*Silence* (like nothing said for min and a half)
Or what's the deal?
"I just don't even want to talk about it right now, i don't even have time to talk on the phone. me talking on the phone right now is keeping me from getting my work done."

I remember seeing pics of a guitar the Leprechaun (or his staff, whatever)made of some kid's custom 'Ibanez.' Took a 2027 bridge, and put it into a green, flamed maple arch-top RG style body, with a EMG's and a bound neck, ebony board w/custom inlay.

I have no idea if it's good or not. The kid said it was on harmony central, and I asked him if he still liked it. He said it was great. But I know this... that guitar looked SWEET.

Sounds very interesting indeed

As for 7-string single coils and blues 7-stringers, didn't 7-strings first become really effectively used in jazz (like, before Vai even)?

I've definitely seen 7-string single coils out there (and I mean, other than already built into guitars ).

Yeah-you've apparently acquired quite a wide knowledge base from him. I thought your fondness for the "deep-neck tenon" and "direct coupling" of pickups BS sounded familiar. Anybody naive enough to believe a word off of that monkey's website has more problems than can be listed in one sitting. Sounds like you're two sp00ts in a sp0d.

Doesn't matter if you have 1 or 10 different IDs. You've been forever branded by the drivel that you've spouted.
