    I think it’s the bird, today.

    It’s my favorite guitar by just a hair.

    It’s a 2016, but I upgraded the pickups to Mojotone Johnny Winter Firebird pickups, and also replaced the pots, caps and wiring.

    The original pickups were fine, but a little hot. These make it sound more like the original Firebirds.

    I had an old school urge today. Got cheap and dirty tones with my TNE Twin.

    Going with this.... Got a possible buyer for it and was recording some sample tones for him. I had forgotten how nice this actually is to play.....almost makes me wish he doesn't make an offer...

    I have not played guitar today (yet), so logically, I cannot post.

    Mahogny body with 1.5 inch (5A) maple top. Fender Custom Shop. Gibson scale lenght. Heavy as fudge!

    I’ll probably never gig or use this in a band due to the heavy weight, but it’s a perfect guitar for recording.
