The AHB-1 7-String Blackouts pickups are the same amazing 9-volt active pickups as the 6-string Blackouts, but built to direct retrofit nearly all 7-string electric guitars. This pickup has the Phase I shape with standard mounting tabs. Perfect for old school metal, garage, punk, thrash, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles.
Like the 6-string Blackouts, the 7-string versions use balanced inputs with a differential preamp for reduced noise. They're voiced for heavy rock with greater dynamic range, less scooped mids, and less compression than other active pickups. Includes 25K pots, stereo jack, battery clip and other mounting hardware.
Note: There are two shapes for the 7-string Blackouts: Phase I and Phase II. Phase I Blackouts have standard mounting tabs and are a direct retrofit for most passive 7-string humbuckers, including those by Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio®. Phase II Blackouts are soapbar shaped and are a direct retrofit for the EMG® 707 humbucker. This pickup uses the Phase I shape.
Players include Dino Cazares / Divine Heresy.
