View Full Description
Like the 6-string AHB-1 Blackouts, these are amazing 9-volt active pickups. However, these are built to direct retrofit nearly all 7-string electric guitars, thanks to two cover sizes, Phase 1 and Phase 2. The Seymour Duncan AHB-1 Neck 7-String Blackouts Phase 1 pickup is perfect for genres like old school metal, thrash, punk, garage, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles.
Heavy Tone with Reduced Noise
Like 6-string Blackouts, the 7-string versions use balanced inputs with a differential preamp to provide reduced noise. These pickups are voiced for heavy rock and provide greater dynamic range, less scooped mids, and less compression than other active pickups you may find.
Also Available in a Bridge Version or in a Set
While you can get this 7-string Blackouts Neck pickup as it is, there's also a bridge version available on Gear4music.com, as well as the two-pickup set. All these pickups come with 25K pots, stereo jack, battery clip and other mounting hardware.
Retrofit for Most Passive 7-String Humbuckers
This is the Phase 1 version of the 7-string Blackout, which is a direct retrofit for most passive 7-string humbuckers, including those by Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio®. The Phase II Blackouts are a direct retrofit for the EMG® 707 humbucker.
