The link doesn't work, but there are Blazes and Blaze Customs; that's it. The Blaze neck is DP700, the Blaze bridge is DP702, and the Blaze Custom is DP703. DP701 is the single coil available on Universes.

Re: what is this blaze??

ok if u replace the ******** with music 123 (no space in there obv!!) then u get the item, its a DP703 so it must be a blaze custom, whats the real difference between them and a regular blaze bridge?

Re: what is this blaze??

the custom isn't as scoped in the mids.

heres what dimarzio says about it

the blaze custom model has a very distinct "clean overdrive" sound. The blaze custom bridge was built for 7 strin players who prefer a hotter bridge pickup with more mid-range. Because more power is focused in the middle of the guitars range, the blaze custom bridge will overdrive an amp more easlily and the sound will be fatter. We still didn't want to make the seventh string muddy so we used our dual-resonance desinge to add some crispness to the low end. You'll get more attack and hottoer harmonic overtones too.

its specs are .
lows 7.0
mid 7.0
highs 6.0
output 410 mv
dc resistance of 16k

compared to the normal blaze
highs 6.0
mid 4.5
lows 7.5
output of 380 mv
dc resistance of 20.75
