DiMarzio Blaze Neck or Seymour Duncan Jazz 7...

Hey everyone. I'm changing out the neck 'bucker in my 7621 and I've narrowed it down to either a DiMarzio Blaze Neck or a Seymour Duncan Jazz 7. I was attracted to the DiMarzio because of the somewhat higher output but I dislike the lack of the treble somewhat (gathered from DiMarzio's tone chart), but I'm attracted to the Seymour Duncan because all of it's frequencies seem to all be higher levels than the dimarzio (comparing respective tone charts, anyways), but I don't like the fact that it's output is so low. I want the neck bucker for a good open, warm, bright, smooth, non-muddy clean tone, and for a good fatter, warm, edgy solo tone. This interest in passive pickups has also made me wonder if I may perfer a Duncan JB 7 or a DiMarzio Blaze Bridge over my current EMG 707 (don't worry, I got the wiring problems worked out). I use my bridge for distorted rhythm, and I like a edgy, bassy, tight distortion sound. What do you guys think? Any other ideas or suggestions?

Put in a Duncan '59-7N. Make sure you get it in the 4-conductor variety. Put in a series/parallel switch.

You will not be disappointed.

yea the Duncan 59 is amazing! I love both Duncans (59 and JB) in my BM i9.7...my new fav pups...but I still love the EMG for the heavy riffage! But the Duncan has more versitillity...(hope thats the right word)

Yeah, I just looked up the specs on the SD 59, as well as the DiMarzio PAF 7 model. You're right, I took a listen to the audio clip of the 59 that SD provides, and it sounds really good! It's specs look more appealing than the dimarzio too. So I'll just put that into my neck and put a push-pull coil tap on it. Until they make a passive pickup that can pretty much do what an EMG 707 does, I'm going to keep the 707 in the bridge (The SD JB doesn't have enough bottom for me, the SD Distortion has too many mids, and both the DiMarzio Blaze Bridge and SD Invader don't have enough high end for my tastes). Thanks guys!
