    My custom sounds pretty good split in the bridge too, except its better when you combine it split with the neck, or by itslef for a twangy sound with slight added overdrive.

      Nice, now I kinda wish I left my SH-5 in my Strat ... I guess I'll know what a split Breed sounds like instead.

      As for the 7 string, it seems that the four pickups that come closest to what I'm looking for in the bridge are the JB, SH-5, the Evo, and the Blaze Custom. I'm guessing any of those will split fairly well. As for the neck the Jazz, PAF and Air Norton.

      A tech at Dimarzio reccommended a Evo/PAF 7 but the Jazz sounds like a better option in the neck.
