Alright, I think I'm going to get a seven-string Jackson Christian Olde Webbers model ... it has an EMG 707 in the bridge as stock.

How hard would it be to put a passive pickup like a JB or Evo in there?

Not too difficult,as you just need to take out all of the components and replace them with passive compatable ones.Your local store should be able to do it for you.

Alright ... decided NOT to get the Jackson. I'm getting an Ibanez Prestige 7-string with a basswood body w/ bolt on maple neck. The guitar has stock pickups though, which I'm sure I'll want to replace.

I've decided that even though I'm using a preamp that will give me more gain than I'll ever need, I like the sound of a high gain pickup ( like EMG's ) with the gain turned down to 4 than a lower gain pickup ( like a JB ) with the gain cranked to 7 ... to me it just sounds a bit more liquid-y. I need something versatile however, I'm going to be playing practically everything you can think of on the Ibanez ... I was thinking about an X2N in the bridge and a coil-tap capable Dimarzio pickup designed for the neck, in the neck. Then both pup's would have coil-tapping capabilities, which means I could cover blues and jazz territory.


X2N-7 in basswood ... yea or nay?

Would you need versatility if you have a low output neck pickup? I guess it depends on what your versatility style is but just in general...

Im going for x2n in basswood (good quality). Im still bewildered by how much heavier my Warlock is than my 1527, because they are both of basswood. And you would expect more wood = more resonance, but no! Warlock = penis resonance!, and the wood volume is about the same...

Hah, there are probably fucking foreign objects in the wood, knowing B.C. Rich.

Steve Vai uses evo's.

Steve Vai = gay.

therefore:

Evo's = gay.


Thanks to Dislexic for editing this post before.

BIll Lawrence/ Swimeshead Pickups

Im thinking of putting new pickups in my ibanez but nobody has ever heard of them before. has anyone here heard of Swineshead and Bill Lawrence pickups.
Was wondering if it would be a good idea to put out money for these or if i should just spend a little extra for EMg's

I've seen that Swineshead website I think once. I don't know anything about their reputation, though.

The Bill Lawrence is tried and true, however. You can't go wrong with it.

would it be a good idea to just put in 2 bill lawrences or put an XL-500 in the bridge and something else in the neck. I know dimebag used the Xl-500 in the bridge but don't know if their neck pickups are good or if i should go with something else

Thanks

hey man, theres no need for your pickups to all be from the same company. It all depends on what sound you want from your guitar. A good thing to consider before getting a new neck pickup is asking yourself what you want to get out of it, and whether or not you need to replace it to get what you want.

anyone who is able to suggest me a pu? i tried almost everything but im not statisfied yet. i play a jackson with x2n atm through an engl savage 120 with double eq. i really like the x2ns lead sounds (high e b and g) but the bass strings ( e and a ... d not that much) get way 2 much boost/gain from my x2n. this makes my rythm sound muddy. it sounds typically overgained.

Does anybody know how the Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rail single coil pickups sound in the neck position?

I would imagine they sound pretty sweet, But anybody know this? I've been thinking about taking out my stock neck pickup to get something a lil more sweeter sounding but sitll with the single coil sound.

Very good,close to the open-ness of a bucker.High output,not so similar to other single coils.
