    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?
