And I'm pretty sure that wasn't always the case because I've played and owned 2 pickup soloists that use a blade. My DK7-M has a 5 way on it and I really like position 4. If it's just going to have EMGs, then a 3 way anything would work I suppose. But I think I really just prefer the feel of a blade switch vs a toggle. If the 7 string soloists were passive it might make more of a difference I suppose. This as a production model with a blade like on my DK7 would be SWEEEEEET... I'm scared to see what the Jackson Custom Shop might charge me for something like that.
