Anyone out there know about the latest Custom Shop Eric Clapton Firebird p/u that's in his new signature reissue? I have a 2016 Historic Firebird I reissue with the aged mini-bucker and wraparound tailpiece, etc. I really have to change my amp settings a lot to get a good tone out of it that isn't too high end and brittle sounding. I can't recall if the p/u has ceramic magnets or what, right now. In any event, I'd like to find out if it's just a matter of the magnets being changed to Alnico 5's or if the redesign of the new EC pickup that Gibson did, is more extensive. Thank in advance !
