I have to say that the splited single coil tones are incredible beautiful, with the neck one you can get very sweet and plenty sounds, it's a very defined tone and the best is that it sounds like a real single coil (yeah it seems to sound stupid but i don't like too much splited sounds), but turn again into humbucker and it's wonderful for soloing.

With the bridge on humbucker mode you get very good and strong rhytmic sounds, a very liquid sound but incredible defined between notes in a full chord with 2, 3 or 4 notes, it doesn't matter, splited it's a ring specially tone, nice for ska and stuff with a big presence of treble.

It sounds very full and equilibrate thanks to a special filter on the tone knob, the mahogany is a very bassy wood and it's necessary (and specially in 7 string guitars).

Btw, as I know, you can put preamps with passive barts models don't you? they work as a special booster if I'm well informed, I'm not interested at the moment, maybe on a near future....

Frank Falbo was who got those pickups for me, I hope he can see this thread as we were talking about my future (now present) guitar, he's a very nice guy.
I use passive Bartolinis myself, though I use the 492s. I also use a Falbo preamp as well. Great stuff, you should get Frank to hook you up

Nice! Not a big fan of black guitars, but this looks impressive. Nice choice of inlays and pickups.
