You may need to adjust the truss rod. I'm not a fan of touching the truss rod myself as it's a delicate operation that could seriously mess up your guitar. Ask a technician/luthier for a proper setup...

I would say that the pickups may still pick up the frequencies but there'd be an extremely weak signal. May even cause unwanted dissonance. Not sure.

You'd need 7 string pickups I would have thought as the pole pieces in the pickups wouldn't fit underneath the respective strings. I have a 7 string and I'm using the time tested DiMarzio CrunchLab...

I was in Tokyo on Monday, and managed to pick up Tool's Aenima, Yngwie's Eclipse and Pearl Jam's Vs. for less than 1000 yen all together. The expensive album argument seems a bit invalid. :confused:...
