How does the pickup selector switch work?

(With three pickups I mean.)

I forgot something - middle and bridge but they're out of phase, it's supposed to emulate a regular humbucker of some sort.

All of the pick ups are pretty low output so you need to crank the amp settings compared to whatever else you might have.

I love the day after an election.

Not because I want to know who wins.

But because finally there is a stop to the ubiquitous political advertising on TV, on my phone, and in my mailbox.

 

I second that.

This, of course, but only so I can do the bit at 4:50 seconds.  Maybe even do a little whammy bar action to spiff it up a bit.

Been hunting the thrift stores for a pair of fly glasses but so far, no luck.

This tea strainer might do in a pinch

Enough silliness, I finally snagged my last guitar, the one model I sold in the past that just killed me, the ICONIC Firebird VII.

This is an 05 and has the banjo tuners

ebony fretboard with a proper headstock (unlike the current Firebird V, hint hint Gibson)

you saw the Schaller roller for the Lyre tailpiece

and here's the whole thing.

I've been after this particular guitar for months and watched (in horror) as it went from the original owner to one flipper after another after another, bouncing from one end of the country to the other.  I just couldn't swing it whenever it would resurface but my wife came to the rescue and floated me a loan for this one.  She's a keeper and so is this guitar.

It's in really good shape but the gold plating is mostly rubbed off of the Lyre bit.  It kind of looks like someone used a metal polish and went oops...

Hope you guys enjoyed watching me put together the COVID Collection and poking fun at Gibson's ICONIC marketing machine.  

 

 

 

 

That guitar is so cool I want it bad. congrats man!

I hope your gonna do it wearing Manz's boots.

Mackay has b-itchen pants.

I need to play some Roxy Music. After Siren they changed too much. And then Lounge RM carried into Brian's solo career.
