Pickups and Electronics
Gibson’s two Firebird mini-humbuckers generate a bright, yet powerful, tone that takes you from twang and jangle to all out crunch and scream. They’re wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain. Steinberger gearless tuners provide highly efficient tuning while preserving the headstock’s stylish lines. A white pickguard with Firebird graphic, black top-hat knobs with silver inserts, and a black truss-rod cover with Gibson logo complete the package.
