    Congrats, Matt! I could understand why you got rid of the C-1. Good choice, the 7321s make cool guitars to mod. Me, im a DiMarzio guy, i'd go with those, but if you're into EMGs, that's cool too. Nice score! :hbang:

    Congrats Matt!

    I think that you can go with Bareknuckles or maybe some Dimarzio D activator. But i think that if you are used to EMG's, that's ok.

    im open to other brands of pickups....ive just playin on my esp for the past 3 years and ive become acustomed to the 81s...id like something comparable possibly in a passive pickup. im used to gibson style guitars and pickups so i need to broaden my horizons lol...

    As far i'm aware you may need to do some routing to actually make the EMG's fit in your RG7321, don't hold me to it but i think EMG 707's etc are bigger than a conventional 7 string pickup. But nice buy anyway man!

    I think I'm one of the few big Duncan fans here. I really dig on the JB-7 models - maybe check one of them out...

    well the guitar came in monday (earlier than expected) and i have a new set of 10s on it. too bad i wont be able to plug it in until i go back home for the weekend lol...its gonna take some getting used to lol. that extra string kinda screws me up a lil. also being i cant hear it unplugged the low b is a bit silent acousticly. i love the binding on the neck...it really brings out that it has a wide 7 string neck lol. ill probably be shopping for pickups before too long..may try some blaze customs
