Hey guys I'm looking to outfit my 7 string with a neck pickup strictly for jazz. The guitar is an ibanez s series with a mahogany body and a maple top. Most likely putting flat wounds on it. I know...seems goofy. just seeing if anyone has come across a model they really like for a mid range, kurt circa 2001 sound. Any help would be stellar.
7 string humbuckers????(5 posts)
Check out benedetto's pups
SH-2's are also a very popular for a warm sound
Also I can suggest you to check Tosin Abasi's gear. He has a collection of interesting 7 string guitars, I am sure they can lead you to more boutique type of pups.
Thanks man, tosin has an Eastman el Rey with kent Armstrong pickups in it. I was curious about those too. For some reason I've heard people complain about the sh-2's being too brittle. Maybe it's just people bitching for no reason. Either way, anything can be better than these terrible ibanez pickups. I'm glad people know about him. He's a great well rounded player and a Super nice guy.
Also I should say that I am very happy with my jpx 7's neck pickup, I guess it is a model of DiMarzio. It has a very balanced and clear output and when I roll of the treble it sounds fantastic. Glad I can help
Yeah the liquifire pickups are surprisingly good for clean tones. Really nice sounding pick attack. I had a guitar with the six string version, never tried the 7 string yet. Ill have to do some more homework on all these. Thanks again man.
