Dimarzio supply the Blaze middle single coil, which for some reason is listed under 7 string humbuckers on their web site. Any Dimarzio retailer should be able to order you one.

There are also production 7-string singles available from Rio Grande (right in your back yard, zeamc) and Kent Armstrong and Warmoth.

Well, we're talking about singles, not humbuckers.

Well, i just thought i'd point it out since you're the one who missed the subject when you posted your original comment.

The thread's title is "7 string single coil".

The Blaze humbuckers sound okay until you put them up against an Evo7 or PAF7 or pretty much any of the other Dimarzio p'ups. Then they lack any sort of body in their tone.

That being said, when i pulled the Blaze single out of my UV, i couldn't believe what chintzy POS it was. It was basically the size and weight of a wooden clothes pin. You can do much better.

Each to his own, but the Blaze single is one of my favorite dimarzio singles (overdriven sound, not for clean)

I think that depends on body wood. The Blaze Bridge, which I've heard many say lacks body, usually have it in basswood. I have it in mahogany, and it sounds GREAT. The "lack of body" gets filled out bythe wood, and actually makes the darker, middy mahogany sound crisp and clear, with a nice focused midrange and great punch.
