I'd describe the sound as kind of dirty bluesy in all the good ways. Think of Malcolm and Angus playing slow and low. As much as I love these pickups (I've never had a guitar with a set of Dirty Fingers in it) I can't imagine a time when I'd go, "You know what this guitar could use--to sound like a single-coil Tele," therefore I don't think I will ever use the coil-tap.You have the most awesome toys......wow
How does she sound?
Here's what I've learned in the past 36 hours--they did three different models of Firebrands--a Les Paul ("The Paul"), an SG and this one that is supposed to be based on an ES-335 but a solid body version. I can see that the body shape might be somewhat similar to the ES-335 but that's where the similarities end.wow never heard of THAT model before
my friend's older brother had a firebrand LP though.
first electric guitar I ever saw, we were smitten by it, as kids!
You bet--all mahogany. Not sure if it's filled. Does this pic help? And yes, double thumbs up to double cuts. It almost has a bit of a Les Paul Jr vibe to it.That is right up my alley. I loves me some double-cuts!
Is that all mahogany and are the pores filled?
It's surprisingly light weight. I'm guessing right around 8-lbs.Looks potentially heavy. How much does it weigh?
Not a fat neck at all, but not skinny either--right in the middle.I had one that actually had left over T-tops in it. Sounded great, but it had the fattest neck I have ever felt. Does your have a fat neck??
The darkness of the grain made me wonder. You can tell by running your finger along the finish. If its smooth, its probably filled but if it grabs your finger over and over then its not. Like Gibsons faded finish I believe it is?You bet--all mahogany. Not sure if it's filled. Does this pic help?
Even lighter than I thought. It just weighed in a 7lbs-11oz.Looks potentially heavy. How much does it weigh?
