Blaze for 7 string
This is the model originally designed for the neck position of the Ibanez Universe. The neck position needs to be warm, but not too fat (nobody wants the low "B" sounding like a tuba, right?), so DiMarzio scooped out some of the mids to brighten up the low notes and kept the power down to a reasonable level to avoid unnecessary sludge.Middle
Seven-string guitars are hard to amplify. Most players tune the seventh string to a low B (or even A), and it's a real trick to get a big, solid tone from the other strings without the seventh turning to mud. The Blaze single-coil is exceptionally tight, and is designed to be a match for the Blaze humbuckers in split mode. Both lows and highs are bright and clean. Bridge
The Blaze Bridge Model bears a strong resemblance to the Steve's Special. The mids are scooped out, and both treble and bass are boosted. The hot bass response gives the seventh string a lot of impact, while opening up the midrange keeps it from getting muddy. This enables the Blaze Bridge Model to handle both fast soloing and clean chords, because individual notes won't smear together with heavy overdrive, and clean sounds have an almost hi-fi quality.
