I'm sure I've asked this before, but oh well. Anyone who has owned an Ibanez RG-7321 will tell you, the stock pickups are not the best things going. I've looked at the market for quite a while, and I've narrowed it down to an EMG 81-7 n the bridge, and a 60-7 in the neck [yes they're real pickups. ask for links if you don't believe me] It's basically the same combo James Hetfield uses, only in seven-string configuration. I love the EMG tone, and I figure it could really help tighten up the sound coming out of my guitar. Before I take the leap of faith, I figured I'd ask UG's opinion. So, what do you guys think?
NO. i have the same guitar.
i put dimarzio d sonic pickups in it. they are the ones john petrucci uses. they are MUCH better. very clear, very tight. you will not go wrong i promis you.
I can't honestly say that I was ever too big on John Petrucci or Dream Theater, but I'll definitely take it into consideration.
