    I need some help here. Do the seymour duncan blackout pickups require you to ground the strings like passive pu's? Emg active pu's do not. Thanks :metal:

    So, with tools arranged, I started my install of my new Seymour Duncan Gus G. Fire System into the Jackson King V (hardtail). I'd mapped everything out except the 3-way slider switch. Pickups went in fine except the tabs were a little wide for the routing in the face of my guitar. Nothing a...

    Awesome video, I'm so glad he used the same guitar and same amp settings to truly compare the two. Apples to apples in this guitar I think the EMTY slays the 707. In a brighter guitar like a Loomis I bet the darker 707's would work better, but it's nice to see another choice.

    According to the Seymour Duncan website, the Blackout AHB-1-7 phase II is supposed to be a "direct retrofit" of the EMG 707. Except that the dimensions listed are not the same and I was wondering if anyone out there with both in their guitars could measure them and tell me if there is indeed a...
