New Dimarzio PAF-7? - Anyone tried them?

I just got my UV777BK and the tone is not quite as - well, sweet - as those that I get from my JS1000. *With the Paf pro and FRED in the JS1000 I can get a super clean strat twang that I use to substitute for an acoustic in certain songs, and almost all of that guitar's many possible clean tones are beautiful.

Using my UV777BK with the neck+middle single coils, and the same POD settings ( I realize I will have to tweak or change amp models - the UV seems to like the Boogie for clean where the JS1000 sounds best with the Twin model), the sound is more ... I don't know .. sterile? * I have to sell my JS1000 *to pay for my recent root c ****
and cap which maxed out my dental insurance, so I had better get some good tones from the UV since it is all I will have for an electric.

It seems that I have to work harder at getting a good clean sound from the UV, so I was wondering if the Blaze pups are the problem and if anyone has tried the PAF-7's yet? * The tone I really like comes from the PAF-pro's in the JS1000 and my dearly departed Jem77, so would a PAF not really compare to a Paf-Pro? *Thanks fo' yo' he'p.

I have a PAF 7 and a Tone Zone 7 in my UV777BK and it was a huge improvement. The PAF 7 is very nice in the neck and the Tone Zone 7 is really nice in the bridge. Very smooth, not too trebly/midrangey.

I highly recommend both.

Thanks, Jeffrey, I will definetely try the PAF in the neck. * And while I'm at it, maybe I will put another PAF or a tone zone in the bridge. *Can you tell me why you chose the tone zone? *Were you going for a heavier/smoother/whatever sound compared to the Blaze pups?

muchas gracias

oops, nevermind I think you already answered *that. I will try the PAF-Tonezone combo.

I went with the Tone Zone because I had played one in one of my friend's Prestige guitars in the bridge position. It was a Tone Zone 6 of course.

It was very nice. Not too shrieky, not too high-mid rangy. Just nice and smooth, chunky if you beat on it just right, soft if you play it just right.

I was honestly very surprised.

I've been extremely happy with it and the PAF 7.
