EMG 81-7 Humbucker for 7-string Guitars

About This Item

Based off the popular EMG 81, the 81-7 utilizes powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils to produce a detailed tone with incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your seven string guitar, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix.

When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering. Other recommended pairings include the classic 81-7/85-7 setup and the versatile 81-7/60-7 combo. EMG's solderless wiring makes installing your guitar pickups easier than ever.

These pickups are outstanding for hard rock and metal. Can cover anything from 80's to present. The 81-7 pack a tremendous punch for 7-string guitars. I use these in both neck and bridge positions as well as mixing them with EMG 707x's. I find the 81-7 to be tighter than the 707, and while the common practice is to use an 81 in the bridge position, I've been using it in the neck position for lead work. Gives solos good note articulation and punch without the thin, ice pick highs of the treble position. As I mentioned above it excels at Hard Rock and Metal but do not underestimate the 81-7. Tweak your volume and tone knobs and, if needed, your amps EQ, and you can coax some nice cleans out of them as well.
