yeah you cant get rid of it, if you had a s7 custom made with one pickup, then you wont see one. other than that we s7 players have to suffer a little. unless its painted white as well, then it wont stick out so much like the rings... :lol:

I think the EMG housings are humongoid as they are, let alone with rings to make them looks even bigger. But since the route job wasnt the best, it might be a good move. I'd usually vote no, but in this case it's a yes. ;D

Keep them

Why does everyone on this board seem to hate pickup rings?

:scratch: dont know, some guitars look good with pup rings some dont, and some look good with/without. but i dont think at all it it makes the guitar look cheaper. :noplease:

Still rings

and you can fit a third pot in the S cavity?

well there might be some snug places but i will be able to fit the battery in there, if i have to route a place for the battery then "lets do it". even for a
2nd battery... i need this guitar done, it been so long since i played her. :mad:

i personally dont like the rings, they make the pickups look dis-proportionately wide imo.

+1 from me.

Those 7string EMG's are quite wide already, more than "usual" pickups. With the pickups rings, it looks a bit exaggerated in my opinion. :scratch:

Btw, I cannot see any problems with the routing that has to be covered.

Greetings! :wavey:
