Solid 7 string sound
Kris Kris, 12.03.2015
I bought two of these pickups to install in my Ibanez RGA7 - yes, in both the NECK and the BRIDGE position.

There's no tone control installed - only single volume pot.

The reason is that I want a) consistent levels, b) consistent sound that's only altered by the physical position of the pickup, not by it's inherent characteristics determined by wiring.

This allows me to use both pickups for either rhythm or solo work, depending on the mood of the song (although I prefer bridge for rhythm and neck for solos).

In that respect, the 707s perform with honors, sound is heavy but not muddled, bright but not telecasterish.

But, as with any pickup, the overall sound will depend on your guitar - the guy I bought the RGA7 from has 707 installed in a S-series Ibanez and the two guitars sound differently.

Your mileage, and experience, may and WILL vary, but if you're looking for a solid heavy 7-string sound, 707s will not disappoint.

EMG 707 Pickup
Andy_P, 15.05.2013
What the hell could I possibly say that's not been said before? It's an EMG! For a 7-string! On the Lead Channel: Your Guitar will decapitate the front row with its sheer brutality. On the Clean Channel: If you roll back that volume on your Guitar...what you'll hear is Honey being spread on Toast in the morning by Tory Lane. Then everything in between. For reference: I use a B/Tone Alder Body 7-string.

A bit dull sounding compared to the 81
Jonathan4402, 03.12.2019
Well made and quiet performance however flat and dull compared to an 81-7, wouldn't recommend for modern scooped tones.
