A pack-leader for 7-string guitar pickups, the EMG 707 humbucking neck pickup has Alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils for a beefed up low B string tone, while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register.

12" - 16" Compound Radius Ebony Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
