I've got another guitar mod project in the works. I have a 7421 body lying around from an older project, and have a bid on a 7620 neck at the moment. Should I win that bid, I'll pull the trigger on an OFR7 trem, new PUPs and all the necessary hardware to get shit going.
Like the title says, I'm looking to get a singlecoil-like tone from the neck PU. Since I'm using a 7421 body, I'm kinda stuck having to slap a humbucker in there. However, I'm rocking a DiMarzio Humbucker From Hell in the neck position of one of my 6ers and it sounds fabulous. I'm looking for a similar tone, just in a 7 string format.
Any suggestions? I'm open to all brands, although I prefer passive rather than active pickups. As for tone, I need something clear and lean, with plenty of hi end sparkle.
