EMG 707's, best pickups for a seven string?

Is there anything special that you have to do when you install emg 707's on a guitar apart from routing and changing to a 3-way selector switch. Also how much would it cost to have them installed? Does anyone here have a preferance over the emg 707's? After listening to rusty cooley im hooked on his sound! I think he uses 2 emg 707's in a custom jackson 7 string (= )

Check some of his videos and sound clips, i mean this guy puts a new meaning to the word shred! http://www.rustycooley.com/

help much appreciated

EMG also makes an 81-7. a 7-string version of their 81 pickup. i've heard people, after playing the stephen carpenter ESP guitar, say it's better than the 707. it can be found on some ESP guitars. don't know if they offer it for sale, maybe you can put a custom order in for the 81-7.

Thanks for your advice, im looking for something a bit hotter than the 81 so i thought the 707's were the way to go. Has anyone tried the Bill Lawrence L500 XL pickup? Its gotten amazing reviews, i think Dimebag Darrel used to use them, I know Bill Lawrence doesnt make 7 string pups is their anything that comes close to it for a 7 string?
