EMG 81-7 7-string active bridge humbucker
EMG-707 7-string active neck humbucker
The ONLY thing I don't like in this guitar is the volume potentiometer position. When I'm playing, my right hand often turn the volume.
The neck is really comfortable to play with. It's my first seven strings, and I was used to the wide neck in a few days. I like the neck !
The guitar is well finished, really beautiful.
I play mostly metal music. Both pickups are awesome for this style. Both give a different sound. The bridge one is perfect for rythm, and the neck one for lead or sweeps...
I'm in drop A, and play through a preamp and VST amp sims on my computer.
The set-thru neck bring a huge sustain. I can notice it compared to my other guitars which are not made that way. HUGE sustain!
I've been using it for about 6 months now. I don't play my other guitars anymore (which are LTD F500 and ibanez RG2550Z).
The seventh string bring a lot of new opportunities.
All in all, I'm really happy to have that guitar.
Here are samples of the sound :
