    Burstbucker 1 & 2 Pickup Heights For Middle Position Tone

    I raise the pole screws pretty high on the neck pup and set it at about 1/16" below strings fretted on last fret. Then match bridge to that volume. With paf style pups, I can get a stratty sound in middle position

    ISO: BB1 or 2 Gold humbucker

    Got a gold covered bb2, reads 8.1k. Long lead and pretty much no wear on cover. Used to try out but went with some thing else. $100 with box and mounting screws and springs

    New Motorcycle Day

    Congrats on the new HD. I've been riding Harleys for 30 years, nothing like it. Seat looks comfy, but too big. I'd lose the seat for a slimmer one.:hmm:

    Interesting checking pattern

    I have that on my 2001 Standard, it follows the maple grains more or less. Maple is expanding and contracting slightly on the grain lines. Mine also has those grey mineral streaks.

    Oops.. EC Vibro Champ went down this am.

    I had a mystery crap-out on an amp once. Turned out to be the speaker, not blown just stopped working. Good Luck and TG for warrantys.

    Its OK. If it ends up bugging you it can definitely be sharpened up later. Where is it on you?

    Hey Firebird players...

    heh? I put the stock ones in and its good. So it was the lowest output winds I had in there (6.6k - B and 6.1k - N) and IDK why its weak at that end. Btw, it was just the bridge. So I have 3 sets of FB pups I don't love and don't want to buy another, I'm gonna try and get along with the stock...

    truck tires-20" vs 17" pros/cons

    Rim size has nothing to do with overall tire size or clearance. Lets say you have a 36" tire, the 20" rim will give you 8" sidewall height, which will be better handling but stiffer ride. The 17" will give you a 9 1/2" sidewall that will be looser. Unless you are going to extremes with your...

    2 things I miss about winter

    I'm a biker and I don't wanna see vigilantes in cars f'n with anyone on a bike as a result of that incident in the city. I take great insult to people who generalize "motorcycles".Just because I'm on a bike doesn't make me an asshole. And as for smog and noise, well I take it you live in the...

    Hey Firebird players...

    Thanks for the responses. Like I said, I kind of guessed that FB pups were just that way so I didn't really go beyond the pup height adjustments. I figured the end of the pickup had a weaker magnetic field. I am pretty knowledgeable on Gibson setups, and everything appears good but it could be a...

    Hey Firebird players...

    Hmmm? OK, maybe I should throw the stock hot Gibsons back in and see, it may be the custom wounds. I've raised and lowered them to no avail. I need to dig deeper now that I know all you guys have no issues, I just assumed thats how they were and deal with it. Thanks
