installed the adjustable version invader 7 string pickup into my fujigen ibanez rg series 7 string last week. there is a huge difference between the stock bridge pickup vs the invader. more output, more tone, more crunch, more devastating brutality through my mesa triple rectifier rig. i had to have the guitar tech at guitar center greenville, sc install this pickup. he had to work his magic on my guitar by routing out the bridge pickup cavity for the invader to be able to set low enough in the guitar for it to work properly. the invader is really a monster in both size and tonal capability. he actually told me they make different versions of the invader pickup, one version is height adjustable, one is not. i don't know for sure about this however so make sure you do your research on this pickup to make sure you are getting the right version for your guitar if this is true. it may save you some time and money if you don't have to route out the pickup cavity for it to fit properly. overall it is worth switching pickups if you have the stock pickups in your 7 string you will not be disappointed.
I put this in a SGR C-7 that had muddy stock pickups. I didn't know what to expect when I plugged in... but I was blown away. This pickup really brought out the low end (I could actually differentiate between notes, it didnt sound all muddy and sloppy), and it made my guitar sound like I paid a lot more for it than I actually did. If you are into the heavy, this pickup brings it.
I was looking for a replacement pick-up for the "duncan designed" pick-up that came with my used schecter 007 elite. This looked like a good canidate. I put it in, mind you I also have a coil splitter on the tone switch, and WOW!! The lows came alive and had definition. Setting up the coil spilt was no problem and it turns the invader into a hot-rodded single coil. I definitly reccomend this for anybody who is having trouble getting that tone definition from their low B string, also get some nickel plated steel strings, awesome sound combo! I've also played the seymour duncan blackouts in a 7 string before and the invader is hands down the way to go(mind you I'm not a fan of actives in a guitar period!! bass is my exception). Good price as well and it looks cool! Can't go wrong.
I got the Invader to replace the stock bridge pickup in my Ibanez 7 string rg because the stock was way to muddy. The Invader is really clear, crunch, and is raunchy as hell, when the distortion is on. It is just as clear and it sounds beautiful when your clean, too.
This pickup up sounds great. There is not too much output, and my guitars have plenty of sound nonetheless, this pickup gave them plenty more. Don't listen to Themis in the last reveiw he probably did not wire it correctly. This pickup has great responsiveness and plenty of tone and bottom end. This is my second purchase of this pickup and is in a Neck through Schecter 007 Elite. Sounds amazing!
This pick up is an excellent replacement for the stock "Duncan Designed" pick ups that come with most seven strings nowadays. Very bright and Crunchy which is what I was going for. Excellent crisp high end notes as well as plenty "Oomph" low end. Plus it came with a new pickup housing which other pickups I have purchased have not come with. Brutal!
