EnigmaUV7 Skatta, the Blaze Custom is definitely on the site. It has WAY more mids and a noticeable increase in output (410mV instead of 380 mV). The overall sound is much thicker and the 7th string has far better clarity.

skattabrain i went to the dimarzio site and could only find info on Blaze, not Blaze custom. what's the deal with the blaze custom versus what's listed on the dimarzio site?

EnigmaUV7 I have the Blaze Custom/Blaze Neck in my UV and this without a doubt my favorite 7-string combo. I love the Evo7, but the Custom is richer and not quite as trebly, a better tone to my ears. Of course, my guitar is Basswood, people with mahogany 7s seem to love the original Blaze Bridge, a great pickup as well. DiMarzio owns the passive 7-string pup market as far as I am concerned, plenty choices.

Well, don't quote me Two Hands! I'm not positive... let's say I'm 70% sure about the bridge/super distortion, but only about 50% sure on the neck/PAF. Hopefully someone (Rich) who knows will post.
A little late for not quoting, but I'll definitely look into it more before I decide for sure that it's the best pickup combination for me.

You've met Richelle haven't you?

Two hands31 Yea, I think they were originally called the Custom 7, but they changed the name so they wouldn't be confused with the Blaze Custom, because they are very different.

well the custom 7 is not an ibz/dimarzio but a "real" dimarzio (juste like the dimarzio bridge pickup made for the AT 300 ) .
that s why i was asking !!!
I think the confusion is being caused by the wording. I believe you mean the pickups used in the RG-7620? In which case they're the "New 7" pickups, which I believe were made for Ibanez by DiMarzio, so they simply listed them as "DiMarzio New 7". (Note: These pickups have been called a few things, but around here we know them by the current "New 7" name)
yes you are right , sorry for the wording it is true that they were first named custom7 and then new7 !

i ll make an edit of the title !

blaze custom vs custom 7 (also called NEW 7)

does somebody knows if the custom 7 and the blaze custom (wich came out in 1998 acording to dimarzio ) have the same caracteristics or not ?
outputs , frequencies ...
to me it seems very strange that the custom 7 and the blade custom came out the same year ( if i am right) and one is available on many guitars , while the other is only available at dimarzio !

last question : is the custom 7 one of those pickups that ibanez calls today ibz/dimarzio ?

thanks for any help !
