Difference between DiMarzio Blaze and Ibz/DiMarzio Blaze 2?

Hey guys,

I was just wondering what the tonal differences were between the original Universe Blaze II pickups and the DiMarzio Blaze pickups that are available for sale from DiMarzio? I haven't contacted DiMarzio about this yet, but may do that if someone here doesn't happen to know.

Thanks,
Jeff

I think they're the same.

They're the same; they dropped the 'II' moniker, as it was confusing, since there was never a Blaze I first - at least, not aside from prototypes.

Placebo effect....people hear what they want to hear. Blazes and Blaze II's are the exact same thing.

Thanks a bunch for the info. For some reason, I thought the Blaze pickups used in the Universes were some sort of Ibanez proprietary DiMarzio OEM model thing... kinda like the IBZ/USA pickups of the late 80'2 and 90's. i.e. you can't buy them through DiMarzio.

Thanks again,
Jeff
