okay so long story short, i dont like the pickups in my 7 string and would like to get a new set which are similar to the vintage 59 and power rails by GFS that i have in my les paul as i think they sound awsome, so basicaly i need some advice on what major pickup makers like seymour duncan and models that are similar to the GFS power rails and are available in 7 string, i figured the 59 will just be a duncan 59, but i cant find anywhere any pickup that would sound like the power rails and is available in 7 string, so any ideas ?

that was a mush basicaly if you didnt understand it ask haha

also the combo i have in the guitar already are a dimarzio X2N and blaze, i dont need advice on making them sound better just opiniions on which other brand pickup sounds like a GFS power rails

http://www.dimarzio.com/site/#/pickups/ click on 7 string in the bottom right hand corner

The dimarzio PAF 7is the same as the 59', and the X2N 7 is the same as the power rails, pretty much. they are more expensive though, and will likely sound a bit better than the GHS as such, assuming both guitars are built equally.

The same pickups also sound completely different in a different guitar so what's in the Les Paul isn't a great indicator of what's good for the 7 string. Also lots of pickups don't come in a 7-string model.

^ i already have the X2N and i dont like it, too weak and muddy for my tastes, or could that be the fact that im comparing a basswood guitar to a mahogany one ?

I have the Power Rails in one of my Strats that made out of fake Mahogany, man it sounds incredible. I just got done playing it, in fact. The body is super bright compared to Honduran Mahogany, so its definitely fake. I would say its on par with Maple's tone.

So there you go, Power Rails sounds great in a heavy guitar, sounds great in a light guitar.

I hope you find something like it for your 7 string.
