7 String X2N?

i got a X2N recently, put it in a late 80s early 90s yamaha, wasn't so satisfied, but put it in my rhoads, looked up the specifics on wiring it in serial, and got it going, and i've not been so amazed by a pickup as this one... in my rhoads is so smooth for lead stuff, yet still chunky for rhythm stuff, its exactly what i want in a pickup, and was wondering if dimarzio would make it for a 7? or if there is anything like it for a 7... i have a Dimarzio Blaze Custom in my RG7421, but its definately nothing like this pickup...

Maybe an EVO7?

I would think the Blaze Custom would be closer though, because the Evo is somewhat less than 'smooth' in my mind. Still all three are very similar in tone-curve, which shows you how much that really means.. lol

maybe the big difference i'm seeing is the basswood body of the RG versus the Alder body and neck thru of the rhoads... i dunno... both are string thru body, the rhoads being tune-o-matic, and the RG being set bridge... whatever it is, i'm loving htis rhoads now and wish i had a 7th string on it(if i get accepted to Roberto-Venn School of Lutherie, then hopefully within the class i'll get to build my concept 7 string lol)

Neck-through guitars have always seemed more smooth or mellow in the initial attack of the note, IMO.

I do really like the Evo7, it's just a very bright, tight, crunchy type of sound, not really smooth..
