According to dimarzios website the air classic has an output of 226 where the area 67's have an output of 120. Thats a pretty drastic difference. A lot of that can be compensated with pickup height, but personly i think the output is a little too far away. If the singles were more like 175 output that might be a bit better.

The air classic is a nice well rounded pickup for output and tone... where the area 67's are very bright according to the tone scale which is fine if that's what you are looking for. I mean, if it's going in an alder or ash body that may be a bit thin sounding.

a major advantage in the neck and middle positions, where sustain and intonation can both suffer if the strings are exposed to strong magnetic fields
Exactly. So if he were to use those, he may need to leave the humucker a little lower than he normally would.
