You were too busy sweating the pickup ordeal!
I really started off looking for the Firebird mini version. I owned an FB V Reverse for about 10 years. I have been looking at those, too. Ultimately I would love to have an FB III Reverse, but another V would be fine.Wow, I love that guitar. I have a Reverse Firebird V and also this 2015 Non-Reverse Firebird. I love the mini humbucker Firebird pickups, they're my favourite pickups and guitars. I would like a P90 version or a vintage model in the future. You could remove the middle pickup and put on a new guard if you don't use it, or just try and enjoy it for what it is, different guitars for different jobs and all that. View attachment 403256
Thank you.You gotta do what works and it still looks cool. Is the finish on these glossy or satin? It's hard to tell from photos.
Looks great. But if you gig that thing, you're going to get at least one guy per show asking you what the mysterious middle pickup is. Glad you finally have the guitar back.
I often find myself picking over the neck pickup on my guitars. The staple in my '55 reissue and the p90 in my classic never seem to get in the way, although the pickup covers might eventually show some sign of abuse. That middle pickup must have been pretty high to get in your way as badly as it did.
Ive been eyeballing one of those for a while but it's too expensive. If the guy lists it again for a more sensible price im jumping on that for sure. Always loved the look of tv white on mahogany body.
