Dimarzio doesn't provide full specs for OEM pickups:
This is the best description thus far:
Their output levels are medium, and the models they bear the closest resemblance to are the
Gravity Storm neck model and
Dominion bridge model.
The single-coil is not very similar to any of our standard single-coils.

If you're having trouble with the output of the pickups (either too loud or not loud enough)
Open up the back enclosure behind the volume knobs
You'll fine 2 blue trim pots (only 1 if you don't have a piezo) you can adjust.
They turn about 3/4 of the way of a full turn from 0 to 100% output.
These are useful to balance the piezo vs magnetic output.

Thanks for posting. Both, but particularly the bridge, seem specially designed to get stratty sounds when split and do a great job. The single sounds fatter to me than a traditional single coil--more bottom and less shrill highs, but crystal clear.

I know of at least one person who has swapped out the neck, but to me it's like the exhaust on my Ducati: I'm not going to pay hundreds of dollars to swap in something that isn't going to sound better. All subjective of course.
