I currently have 2 1527cb's, I've replaced the pickups in both. 1 has Air norton 7 in the neck and Tone zone 7 in the bridge. This is my favorite guitar,,,, it's very warm and the way the pickups are eq'd it works very nice with the Bad horsie pedal. This guitar has sort of a Dream theater feel to the tone,,,,sort of like from the 6 degree album or scenes from a memory.
The other guitar #2 has a blaze in the neck and a blaze custom in the bridge. We all know the blaze for neck just rocks. The custom in the bridge is very cool,,,a little warmer than the normal blaze but not quite as big as the tone zone,,, it's sort of a inmature version of the TZ7. I don't mean that in a bad way,,,,it's just a little brighter,,, great for fast chops very clean and still warm,,,it seems to have a crisper definition to the notes. But some of that is the wood as well. These 2 guitars sounded different with the stock pickups in them so comparison is as always full of variables. However if I had to try and pick a sound to match to #2 I would say,,, it's got sort of a Passion and Warfare sound to it. I realize Steve really didn't use the 7 exclusively on that album but the tone is in that area. Cleaner, simpler not all grown up and rounded off like the Tz7.
