You DO know you'll have to route the guitar for it, right? Unless you're a diehard fan of EMG's, I'd suggest getting some passives instead.

If you figure it's worth the price, go ahead and do it!

High output with low noise, I don't think there's much else to choose but EMG707.

Re: rg1527and emg 707

Ciao, se vuoi avvicinarti il pi¨ possibile al suono di un EMG con un pickup passivo ti consiglio di installare un Evolution7 o meglio ancora, aspettare alla prossima uscita del X2N-7 (se non sbaglio Michael Romeo usa un X2N). Il Blaze CUstom Ŕ un ottimo pickup ma non si avvicina al suono di un EMG.

Io ho un Evolution 7 sulla mia sette corde e lo trovo un p˛ troppo incazzato per i miei gusti (ed Ŕ una chitarra in mogano perci˛ dovrebbe essere comunque piu calmo che nella tua che Ŕ fatta in tiglio), ma se ti piaciono i distorti molto grintosi allora potrebbe fare per te.

Dimentica pure il discorso dei legni per˛ se ci installi gli EMG perche diventa completamente irrelevante.

Traduction:

In a few words, I'm just suggesting him to go Evo7 or wait for the X2n-7.

Yes they do take the wood type out of the mix.

Re: rg1527and emg 707

i feel putting EMGs in such nice axes defeats the whole purpose of tone. Put NICE passives..but NOT EVO. They are kinda harsh sounding in the basswood.

I use TZ7 and it has VERY nice and TIGHT sound and it is pretty easy to dial in the tones with these babies in the axe.

Hey, I say that if you want that kind of tone and you can afford to have your guitar routed to fit the pickups then go for it.
