I am planning to place a custom order soon and I wanted to ask a few questions to make sure I'll be getting what I wanted.
The guitar will be a seven string baritone, mahogany body, maple neck through, ebony fingerboard. I was thinking of putting blackouts in it.
Do you think that would sound good? I'm looking for a very heavy, thick chugga chugga sound. I play a lot of metal, not many leads, Low string is tuned to A.
I could also do an alder body... I'm not totally sold on a mahogany body.
Also, are blackouts the same size as emg pickups? Meaning, if I wanted to change them out at some point to emgs, would I have to make larger holes in the body to accomodate them?
Thank you for any help!
