    Anyone have experience with putting a Firebird pup in the neck position of a Les Paul?

    Improvements in tone?

    My thoughts (but I have no hands on experience) are that a Firebird pup would be the brightest pup compared to a mini-humbucker, full humbucker or P90. am I right?

    Sure, brighter. But putting a smaller pickup in a larger cavity, won't that induce microphonics?

    It will be no different to any other pickup....which relies on the quality of cover addition plus the rubber or spring based damping on height adjustment
