A buddy of mine is basically giving me his LTD SC 607 that he doesn't want anymore. It will be my first experience with a 7-string guitar. I plan to clean it up, set it up, and experiment with it. Does anyone have any opinions of this guitar? It has a maple body, which surprised me. At some point in the past, my friend had the EMGs swapped out for some DiMarzios (he thinks they are DiMarzios, he doesn't exactly remember), and since I'm not married to any particular pickup, I am open to experimenting with others. But I have no idea what pickups have high potential to sound best with a maple body/maple neck/rosewood fretboard guitar.
Here is a pic of what one looks like with the stock EMGs:
My MHB-400 is Maple body, Maple neck/rosewood fretboard, and its a great sounding combo, imo. So I don't think you have anything to worry about there. My MHB has the active EMG's in it, so I don't know what pickups would be best for you. Maybe Dactivators would be good in this combo.
