i've been thinking about a mahogany body. probably a baritone, but since it will be b-e-a-d-g-b i figure the pickup specs should be the same as a 7 string. i like the x2n in alder, a la michael romeo. any idea?

Don't do it. The world needs its mahogany forests.

theres a thing on the dimarzio site where you enter the properties of your guitar and it tells you what pickups it recommends. but i don't think it caters for downtuned 6 strings. might be worth a peep anyway.

i'm a total mahogany slut, love that stuff. Great wood for the ole guitaring.

Also, can't go wrong with EMG pickups generally, the active ones anyway.

yeah, i know. mahogany is on the cites appendix for endangered species, so i want to get this right. i feel that if i ever attain a high level of accomplishment on the guitar, i might be worth of owning 2 mahogany guitars. other than those, i will never buy any mahogany.

You might want to try for the DropSonic pickup, and place it the way they say to place it for a guitar tuned to standard, that way you won't be as mudded up.
