I like the explorer and the thin L5 lookin thing.

 

I wonder how you adjust the height on the pickups. Looks like they are mounted differently than normal. No mounting ring and no visible mounting screws

 

Maybe it's new Robo pickup technology? Lol [lol]

There was a discussion about that somewhere on the forums, maybe the Les Paul section. Apparently there are long adjustment screws through the back of the guitar.

Dig the Explorer. Not a fan of the SG's and LP's with out pickup rings. Those knobs look strange on them. They are colorful. How do you adjust pickup height. Its not like a P-90. I see no adjustment screws.

 

:o :o :o Who ever had that idea needs a good slap

The "thin L5 lookin thing" as you refer to it is an ES275, but a new finish for this model I think.

 

If you look really close the Firebird pickups look like they have 8 screws. The middle six would be the pole pieces and the outer two would be for height adjustment.

 

I think the height adjustment from the rear on the HP Les Pauls and SG is sort of cool. It gives the guitars a really super clean look without the pick-up rings. But personally I'm an old school pick-up rings, pick guard, and poker chip sort a guy.

That's perfectly normal for P90s.. :) But its not the outer screws... You can see the two that are different either side of the middle two pole pieces
