Quick question. If I were to replace the pickups on this guitar, would it fit a soapbar style humbucker, or would I need to get a standard humbucker? I want one, but the entire decision lies with if I can throw my Bare Knuckle Aftermath soapbar humbuckers in there.
Soapbar pickups have a different footprint than that of standard humbuckers, safe to say some modifications would need to be done in order to accommodate another pickup style
I'm glad I'm not the only one not digging the bridge pickup. Also thinking of BKP, but Holy Diver or Nailbomb.
Jan, I have both, and I can maybe help with the decision! Nail bomb is good for 6-strings, but for 7's, the low end is kind of muddy and prominent. Holy Diver is good, but a little bit more difficult to mix in recording since the highs and high mids push through a lot. For 7-strings, I really like the Aftermaths because they have a really nice high and mid balance, with some subdued low end. I barely have to do any EQ adjustment on them, and when I'm just playing to play, they're still gorgeous sounding and clearer than the other two. Each one shines on a different type of guitar, but I feel like the Aftermaths are more well-rounded.
Speaking of active pickups for this guitar... as an example, an EMG 81-7 won't fit in that cavity,... but a SD Blackouts with passive mount would fit just fine. Am I right?
These are passive sized 7 string pickups, so the active sized soapbar housing style pickups will not fit.Fishman has several options, they make a lot of their Fluence pickups in the 7 string passive sized housings -- the Keith Merrow signature 7's, the Javier Reyes signature 7's, there's many more too that they have that will fit perfectly.
In terms of fitting, the real issue is the depth of an active soapbar, like the EMG81-7... So I had to carve a bit into the cavity to get proper fit of the bridge pickup. Not that much, but it takes some work. Also, getting the correct mounting rings (also the correct curvature of the body or just adjusting the ring with sand paper), the screws for the rings, etc. etc.
I'm OK with Fishman Fluence and other pickups, but all my guitars have EMG81 or 81-7, and I've using them for more than 20 years now.
And I really love this guitar, and now it's an absolute beast...!!!
Here she is:
After more than half a year of ogling it I have finally ordered one - it's supposed to be here by Tuesday. Hopefully it'll live up to my expectations...
hope you enjoy it
Mine is in the mail. How are you liking yours?
Love the style of this guitar and I am considering buying one, but I do have 2 questions:
1) What is the weight of this guitar? I know many guitars of this body shape are on the heavier side.2) What is the neck profile on this guitar like? Is it the same profile as the horizon series 7 string neck?
P.S. if this guitar was released with a 27" scale length I would immediately buy it. Since Evertune is incredible for downtuning, as are baritone scale lengths, having an ESP baritone guitar with an Evertune bridge would be a game changer.
These will be around 9lbs and both neck profiles will be the same thin U at 20mm at the 1st fret and 2mm at the 12th
Good day good people!Are there any plans to release a 27" scale version of this for cave trolls like myself?
Hey John, no plans at the moment.
I back you up on this one! 27" scale would fit just perfect on this axe! This guitar is spectacular!
Ditto. If this had a 27" scale length I would buy it, no hesitation
