Picked up this 1999 Epi MIK Firebird today


Recommended Posts

Bought this lovely thing today. Always wanted a Firebird and I love mini humbuckers. Got it for a great price too $460 US

Appears to be made Unsung factory Korea, never heard of them.

Are they difficult to put strings on or keep in tune? I'm not a whammy guy and never worked on a Maestro Vibrola.

Why the long gold plate behind the bridge? Does it cover the springs for the whammy?

Did they come out with the Gibson headstock cover? I remember some of the early Epi Hollow bodies and LP came  with Gibson truss cover

Did the original have a neck through body? What is the neck construction on this one?

Anyone own, have any experience or opinion on this guitar? I haven't seen it in the flesh yet, on the way
