    This is kind of a two-part post.
    I'm getting a Stagemaster 7, and I have a few questions.
    First: what wood is the body?
    Second: based on first question, what pickups (passive or active, no matter) would you recommend?
    Third: How exactly do I block a floyd rose?

    if anybody could help, that would be awesome!
    I've really been needing a new guitar and I just want to know what I'm getting with this, and any tips from fellow Stagemaster 7 owners would be awesome!

    Looks like it's an alder body. It's got passives in it stock, so I'd probably toss a Crunchlab/Liquifire combo in it. As far as the trem goes, a Tremol-No should do the trick. Of course, you could always just stick a piece of wood under it.

    I second the crunchlab/liquifire combo. They arent the beefiest guitars so the pups help make it sound a bit bigger. Had one a while back and they are a good starter 7.

    Also a tremel-no will help with the tuning and blocking and all that jazz.

    I've considered getting these quite a bit. Would you have any other ideas as to what would go good in alder?
    Also how much does a Tremel-No run, anyways? I can't access quite a few sites, seeing as how I'm on at school.

    There are different models but seems like $50 is a good average price.

    I think Dimarzio D activators might sound good in an alder body as well. You could always get EMGs or Blackouts too.

    Honestly, I don't really like active pickups, but I might just go for them this time around.
    The only problem I'd really have is picking out what pup I'd need for the style of music I play.

    I guess just your typical chuggawugga (metalcore, deathcore) type stuff with a fair amount of lead mixed in.
    Also didn't you have/mod the living hell out of one of these?

    Duncan Distortions are always a reliable choice, too.
