I'm thinking of getting a 7 string. Probably this Dean Vendetta, Its only like 200 dollars at musicians friend.
I'm sure because of the price, the pickups suck.. I looked on youtube, and the neck pickup is good for cleans.. but I couldnt find anyone that played metal. thats the music I play, So i want to know a good passive bridge pickup for metal. thanks.

Save for the Schecter I would say, it will last longer in the end.

If you have to put a new pickup in either guitar I would say a 7 string Duncan Distortion in the bridge. I'm generally against changing pickups unless it's really necessary though, and you have a good amp already.

New amp / bandwagon.
Seriously, you worry about pickups when you play (metal ) on a frontman?

But if I had to choose - go with the Schecter.

It even says "High Quality" in the title, so you KNOW it's quality

i second getting an iby. but imo the best passive 7 string pups are bareknuckles.

With the Damien, you won't be able to use passives when you decide to take out the EMG Hz's.
I suggest saving up more or an Schecter Omen/Ibanez RG7321/LTD SC-207

I own an Ibanez RG-7321, and I love the thing. All it needs is a tighter pickup in the bridge. I'd put in an EMG 707, but you're looking for passive, and EMG doesn't make a passive 7-string p/u as far as I'm aware But yeah, the Ibanez RG-7321 is a good way to go.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...
