New Seven Day. Saber content.

Well it's been a while since I've had a 7, plus I've had some major S Series GAS lately. So I got a great deal on this from my buddy Adam. It looks brand new. Honestly the quality IMO is far better than that of my RG premium. No obvious flaws I can find. Having a Loomis kind of got me out of 7's, but feeling the Ibby 7 string neck makes me remember why I used to love 7's. The bridge pickup tone is the best I have heard. Tight crushing and brutal. Well obviously the guitars only flaw is it's lack of a bridge pickup. You can see what I have in store for it in the last pic. It is getting a Evo7 in the bridge and a PAF7 in the neck. The neck pickup in it now is likely a Liquifire, but I'm not positive. I will likely sell it if I like the PAF. On to the pics.

I love ibby sabers, especially 7 strings. It will look great with the new new hard ware on it. Happy NGD.

The body is Mahogany, so that isn't an issue.

Eh, my ARZ307 is mahogany too and has insane dive. The S series (and my AR) is balanced for a 6-string, 22 fret neck. They take the same body and put a ~17% heavier neck on it and move it out to accommodate the extra 2 frets which kills balance on a lot of stuff. Maybe they changed up a few things enough to fix it, but more often than not I've seen 7-strings have far worse balance than a 6-string version of the same guitar.

I had the old S7420 flame top model and Joe's new guitar here and I didn't have any problems. What you're saying makes sense, but I figure that the neck on your AR is probably a bit heavier than those on the S7420

I really love it. In fact I demand pics with the bridge pup in

While raping a bear in Yellowstone and snorting coke out of a freshly-dead baby's skull, I finally felt that I had found my calling and built a time machine out of Iraqi WMDs and LOTS OF HEMP WHOA.

It's BKP's newest model. They actually wind it so tight that it reduces the entire pickup to a point-mass.

OK so I need opinions. I got a great deal on a set of Dimarzio's. Problem is one is zebra and one is reverse Zebra. I was planning on just flipping the EVO as it really doesn't sound any different either way around. However I wasn't thinking about the fact that it would mess things up with the in between positions on the 5 way switch. So my only real option is to run them both the right way around which puts both top coils as green and both bottom coils black, which is not the normal way of having zebra pickups. I think it will still look ok, but want some reinforcement. What do you guys think?
Normal Zebra

Reverse Zebra

Retarded Zebra (how I'm gonna have to run it)

Been there, done that with BKP's. Perfectly happy with Dimarzio's and an extra $200 in my pocket.
