RG7620 picks ups...why bother custom?
FWIW - the characteristic that I found specifically not to my liking, was the lack of focus of the sound of the New 7s. They seemed to be all over the place. There's a shred sound there, but it's not as versatile as it ought to be, and so 'fuzzy,' lacking that clarity that a Blaze series pickup has. The same day I picked up my RG7-620-GN, I put the replacement bridge pickup on order, and had it within a couple of weeks.
I had been just too used to enjoying a UV7BK with Blaze series pickups in it to allow for the New 7 in there.
