    Hey!

    I'll be changing pickups in my RAN Crusher 7 string soon and I've narrowed my choices down to a few pickups.

    Firstly, the specs are: mahogany body, walnut top, wenge neck with maple strips, macassar ebony board, 27' scale.
    I'm playing through an Orange Rockerverb MK II + Zilla 2x12 Fatboy.

    As far as the bridge pickup goes, I'm stuck between the C-bomb, A-bomb and Cold sweat. From what I gathered the CS and the C-bomb are best used in darker guitar since they're somewhat brighter, while the A-bomb has warmer highs. I'm not sure if my guitar is considered dark or not and which pickup would be the best fit. :scratch:

    For the neck, I'll go with either a CS or a NB. I already have a guitar with a CS neck and it's wonderful, but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the NB neck - is it really far more agressive and trebly?

    Thanks :wavey:

    In a week or so I'll be receiving my Ran 7 with very similar specs to yours, I went for C-bomb and CS, I'll be able to tell you how it results if you can wait :)
