I'll put this here since it's about UV Blaze pickups, but if this belongs somewhere else, sorry!
I pickup an H-S-H set of green bobbin, brass bottom Blaze pickups as part of a deal. I was told they came out of an old Universe, which seems right. Dunno where else they would have come from, and they came with a Cosmo Chrome Lo Pro Edge 7, so this seems right. The seller said that the bridge pickup was amazing/killer/etc. etc. but I just thought "whatever, it's a Blaze." Turns out all of the pickups have a sticker like this on the bottom:
I Googled for info on Kent Armstrong reworks/reworked, but can't find anything. Anyone have any info? Unfortunately I haven't installed these in a guitar yet. I don't have anywhere for them to go at the moment... I don't have any resistances measurements either, unfortunately. They're still installed in a junker parts guitar for now.
EDIT: Curiosity got the better of me, and I just pulled them out.
Blaze Neck: 16.20 kohms (stock claims 15.
Blaze Middle: 12.00 kohms (stock claims 13.46)
Blaze Bridge: 17.86 kohms (stock claims 20.75)
Next question. I pulled this out of an Aria Pro STG-7 string. It LOOKS so much like a Blaze neck, down to the patent sticker and the N1 marking (it came with black poles, but this pick was half-way through replacing those with chrome poles). But no Dimarzio logo on the baseplate. Any ideas? It measures ~16 k ohms resistance, which is pretty close to what a Blaze Neck would be. I set it side-by-side with another Blaze neck, and the coils are the same thickness/height.
Any info would be appreciated! Basically just curious about these pickups.
