Ok, so I have a Washburn WG-587 seven string;,
and i want to put These; Seymour Duncan 7 string blackouts in it. Is this a doable project?

Edit: the reason i posted the back of the guitar, is because i want to know whether routing will be required.

Its just a question of "do they fit in the pickup holes" isnt it?

Why wouldn't they work? As long as it's a guitar with 2 humbuckers you can put any pick ups in really. Is your guitar active or passive? If it's passive it's a bit harder but still doable. Infact you can pretty much use any pickups in any guitar with a bit of work.

Ok, thats good to know. ive been told conflicting things about putting actives in a passive guitar, so thanks much for clearing that up!
Edit@ jer: yes. the ones i have on there have pickup rings, while the 7-string Blackouts and the EMG 707's are direct mount.

The pickups will come with some other parts too.

New pots, new input jack, and a battery clip.

Where the battery goes is what can cause routing issues. I usually just wrap mine in foam and put it under that plate you see on the back. Sure you need a screwdriver to change it but thats not that often.

You just need to find somewhere to keep the battery. It is very easy to do.

I put the SD blackouts in my ibanez RG model that came with passive's and it wasn't that bad. I had to modify the pickup mounting tabs to fit into my guitar and i removed the quick connector pins on the bottom because they kept the pickups from sitting low enough. Other then that it really wasn't bad at all. Good luck, and post pictures when your done cool.gif
