Hello y'all!
This is an updated:
recently got a '98 firebird, it had an issue with the bridge pickup having low volume and i was afraid it might be the pick up...
So i got the volume pot changed and voila! its now workingPosted Image i must say i am in love with this guitar, loving the stock pick ups tone, im glad i didnt have to spend money on a new one!
i also changed the knobs, it came with black top hat style knobs and changed them to gold top hat, to get a more vintage look Posted Image
Pictures of before and after (hope the pictures DO post hehe):

WOW, that FIREBIRD looks PERFECT !!Congrats, in the original post, it says the POT fix is NOT working, but you seem happy about it. TYPO ?
The pics are on IMGUR, and I'm glad I didn't have to join just to take a look at the 'Bird....

Are you ever planning on taking the clear plastic off of the pick guard?
That's the first thing I do.

Nice looking guitar, the gold looks good on it, too.

Wow - would never have thought to put gold knobs on a guitar that; a) wasn't gold finish, or B) didn't have gold hardware.

I was wrong!

Will do this with my Firebird this weekend!

thanks....

I did see your post in the Lounge, but I can't post there. Cause I'm stupid a-hole Zappa Fan. They offered me The CEO job but I mostly wear Columbia Shorts, so I was not the man for the job. Any one watch Trailer Park Boys out of Canada. As Bubbles says "He looks Greasy".

Being Gay or Lesbian is a lifestyle . Guitars are my hobby. Now I'm banned again. See in a few months.

to post a photo your text string has to have a ".jpg" at the end ... using the "Insert Image" button Posted Image in the post editor..

like this one of yours.... https://i.imgur.com/Eqbt7Aq.jpg ......
