haha, thx man
you will need new pots (500kOhm) since EMGs come with 25kOhm pots.
Oh snap, definitely gonna try this out at some point!
I just picked up some 35-style covers, and will be attempting this when I put passives in my RG1527.
Thanks, you really helped me a lot!
I'm replacing my EMGs in my Schecter Hellraiser C7 with BK Coldsweats and ordered these EMG 35 sized covers as well
I plan on getting BKPs for my 7 string Les Paul, I do want pickup covers and I know BKP has the option to buy theirs but I've heard (seen) bad things about the ones they make, paint scratches off and it's white underneath so it looks ugly! I was considering using EMG covers but I don't think the EMG cover fits in the pickup cavity, so I'd have to cut away at the wood to make enough room which I'm not gonna do... I guess the only way to find out is to measure a 7 string emg cover and measure the pickup cavity, but if it turns out the EMG cover does in fact fit I'll definitely do this... or at least try haha.
The EMG 7-string covers are bass pickup housings. they're wider than standard 7-string pickups, so you they won't fit within the pickup rings and you would have to route the body.
Would a 7 string BKP fit into a 6 string EMG cover?
Come to think of it that's probably a stupid question because the answer is most likely no... haha
So do you know off hand if they make any pick up covers that can fit a 7 string les paul with no routing?
bare knuckle pickups is the only manufactures that offers "standard" sized 7-string pickup covers. they do not sell them separately afaik, though.
Yea, well I was considering buying the BKP with the covers... then I discovered this:
Quite the turn off. This is for the satin black pick up cover, I know they have a regular black and the battle worn black but if they all chip then I don't want them. I'd rather have plastic covers.
You just solved all of my issues. thread of the millenium!
I know a lot of people have ordered the 7 string size of these from Guitar Jones - they haven't even shipped mine yet and I ordered them two weeks ago. Since I have a show coming up I want to use the guitar for, I ordered a set from MojoTone yesterday, and they've already shipped. Just FYI.
Question... Does anyone know where I can get EMG-style pickup covers the size of a normal 7 string pup? Or will I only be able to find the 707 sized ones if at all?
This is what happened to mine, inside the box. Oddly enough, while it was quite noticeable in the neck pickup (and Tim wasn't really too cooperative this one time), the bridge pickup was not only flawless but displays no sign whatsoever that might lead me to believe the same might happen.
Hmm. Interesting question. I've never seen passive-size blank 7 string covers.
sorry for the little bump but why isnt this sticky'd??? i think it should be because now i can FINALLY convince myself to buy guitars with EMG's in them
im in Europe to and I ordered the 6 string EMG style covers from Guitar Jones USA but Im a little worried about the order.
I ordered them 5 days ago and have sent 2 emails about postage and heard nothing back?. Ive had NO "Item is dispatched" emails or anything?. They took the money and Im worried I wont get them now?. :S
When you received yours in 2 weeks did you get an email or anything from them or did you just wait and they turned up?
I think i just got an order confirmation per email after making the purchase
I've ordered parts from the US a few times and it typically takes about 2-3 weeks depending on customs
thanks for getting back to me really appreciate it. Yeah I got the Initial Invoice from the order and thats it..
Thats a relief though that was the same for you. I will just wait it out then and they should arrive.
Like I said its been 5 days already so 1-2 more weeks and they should appear..
