I have an older version of the Washburn WG587, its got two humbuckers and a single coil in the middle. I believe the body is basswood, but it feels heavy enough to be mahogany (I compared with my LTD EX-351). Anyway, I'm looking for a heavy, yet defined tone. I'm hoping something close to Opeth (Still Life era) and Arsis. Any suggestions?

i think EMG makes a pickup specifically for 7 string guitars. Steph Carpenter of the Deftones has them on his custom ESPs. i think they're called 81-7's.
I would go for the EMG 707,but I also need a single coil pickup for the middle, and since EMG doesnt make a single coil for 7 strings, I cant go with the EMGs (from what I hear its hard as hell mixing passive and active pickups). Anyone else?
