  1. BillyBlades, The Retrotrons are great. I put them in a 2PU Strat. The neck is a Nashville & the bridge is a Liverpool. Love the Gretschy plank sound!
  2. I've got a Mean90 at the neck of my Joe Pass with the orig. HB at the bridge. The Mean90 is great on it's own or mixed with the EpiHB and that's with the 500pots. Just built a 2HB size Strat with GFS Retrotrons, Nashville at the neck and a Liverpool at the bridge. Great Gretsch chime & growl. Can't say enough about GFS PUs, and their hardware too.
  3. DCBird, that 12string sounds very different, any pictures? MFF, Love that color. Have you reworked that repair ready for paint? All those necks were so thin (for 12string) it's amazing they all weren't broken after all these years. BTW my minihums have the plain covers (no visible screws) and the gold bell knobs, and hey, if those inlays were done well, you've got a custom/vintage bird!
  4. I apologize for not getting back to you.

    I don't recall the french firebird but will review archives again to possibly come up with a connection.

  6. hello, who is the person in france with a F/Bird 12 string? Love to know when he got it and where.

  7. I've got a GFS Mean90 neck with orig. Epi HBer at the bridge on a Joe Pass. The blend is great & individually pretty diverse.
  8. I've switched the bird to 6 strings again to get a little more play time.
  9. Robert, Hello again & Yes, That's a great idea to do the photos. I'm not that good with the photo stuff but will see what I can do. Vin
  10. I've got the GFS Mean 90 in a Joe Pass. Drop right in fit & finish. Love the sound and the price.
  11. Musax, I replaced the neck HBer on my Epi Joe Pass with a GFS Mean 90. The mids are pronounced more than the stock HBer & they have a great growl/bite. Roll back the volume a little & they are classic clean. The GFS dropped right in to the HBer bezel perfectly,too. I personally wouldn't hesitate to replace a HBer with a P90, and to get it in drop right in form with no alterations, even better !
  12. if it helps, remember that all that happens to your guitars just adds character.
  13. Grog, There are a few posts around here about the Firebird 12 strings and the players who have,had or seen the elusive bird. Our incredibly scientific worldwide search via this forum has found , last I recall, 20 or so. There are a few of us who still have ours. Welcome to the, "ain't that the sweetest neck you've ever played" club !
  14. Thanks Bill@WH. Do you still play it? Thanks too for the EBay info. Vin
