7-string pickups

I was looking to buy a EMG 707 pickup for my 7-string guitar & my friend told me that its in a bass housing & you have to cut your guitar to make it fit, is this true? If so whats the next best thing to the 707 thats a direct replacement so i dont have to cut my guitar?

707's you do have to cut the body for....depends on what you like

If you were going to get a 7 string EMG...go for the 81-7 (an EMG version for 7 string )

ohterwise I don't know. You could check out lungdren (meshuggah uses em...thats about all I know.

Or some seymours

Ive been looking for a EMG 81-7, are they a direct replacement or do you still have to cut your guitar?

Thanks for the link & i dont understand why EMG would make you alter your guitar to use these pickups, Maybe it was just to save money & more people would buy them if they were a direct replacement. If i can find someone that has done it before than thats the only way i would cut my guitar.

Read the rules, idiot. Pickups are GEAR talk.

Im about to purchase an EMG for my 7-string but before i do i need to know if its hard or not to route the guitar? I need to know what tools i will need since im gonna do it myself. One dude told me to get a router but i looked & nobody seems to know what a router is. Any help would be great!

I have the EMG-81-7 p'up, very nice tight sound.

I would recommend that you take your guitar to a shop to get it fitted rather than do it yourself, if you do it wrong your screwed, if in the unlikely event the screw it up you get compensated.

As for routers, my guitar dealer uses a Dremel, they come with a router bit.

How much did he actually cut to make it fit? And how is it held in place?
