Hi,

I came here to share some humble opinions, experiences, and hopefully some good times. Maybe trade a guitar or two.

Non-Gibson but has Gibson P-94 looks very natural. Best pickup decision I've made.

Rabs, you're so right. 2011 Firebird Studio might be my favorite pickup layout and wiring options. GENIUS! Posted Image Super underrated. Pelham or Burst?

There was only one choice for me :) and yes the pickup combo is what totally interested me.. Its amazing to have such a versatile guitar and they are as solid as anything. It weighs as much as some of my Les Pauls which i wasnt expecting.. AWESOME :) [thumbup]

Hi S2ND (hope you don't mind the contraction. Apologies in advance if you do!).

Welcome to the Forum.

That's a very interesting - and great - choice of guitars you have there!

I have had GAS for a Firebird on and off all my life.

Firebird pups are somewhat of an anomoly, in that nobody seems to care, nobody currently offers them for sale or makes them. Yet, they are well known, and many great recordings and good players have used them.

Some make "mini humbuckers" that fit the slot. But those aren't FB pups, are they?

Stein it's funny that your talking about Firebird pup. This is my other thread: http://forum.gibson...._1#entry1163070
I'm looking for mini firebird replacements. So under rated as you were saying and pickup makers don't seem to make them for the most part. Even Gibson retailers don't carry them.
