  1. New to the Firebird V (just got me a 2010). Love the feel and sound, but having some tuning issues. I set it up how I like it, so that part is good. Intonation is great. I know I can take it sharp if I push the strings hard on the frets, but that’ll bounce back after I let go. A few big bends or smashing a few hard chords, it’s out. It just seem like the stock banjo tuners aren’t holding it in tune. Am I missing another element that may be taking it out of tune? I hear mixed reviews about the Steinberger gearless machine heads. Mostly good reviews, but I thought I’d put the direct question put there. Do Steinberger gearless tuners for Firebird V equal improved tuning stability?
  2. I’m trying to find info on Skunk Baxter Firebird pickups. Were they only made for the signature Firebird? Or can they be bought as an upgrade for a regular Firebird? What is the sound like? I’ve read they’re the closest a Firebird pickup will get to a Classic ‘57 but can’t find any reviews or sound clips anywhere.
