Will do. I think it should ship out sometime next week. The Firebird is out of stock too, but the dealer (Sweetwater) has no idea when that is coming in. It seems most online shops are stating they are not getting any in of this color until May. I did find it elsewhere but Sweetwater is giving me a 10% discount and I'm cheap. :)

I know right? If it has me droolin then that's amazing. But I mean I have never seen one before that would go so nicely with the other half of a great pair

Seriously though, if I owned an SG the electronics would look very similar and it really is beautiful looking instrument :)

Ok, well it appears that Gibson Firebird won't be in stock anytime soon and I decided I can't wait that long. So, I just ordered something else that was in stock, ready to ship. Now I can live out my Billy Zoom fantasies.

Billy Zoom used to do amp mods around here. :)

I lover that model Gretsch. The black one that George Harrison played looked killer, too:

Hopefully he doesn't see my post. He'll think I'm a weirdo.

It is a humbucker. Also, I don't know if you guys know this (I didn't know until I saw the Pawnshop) but this is a reissue of the Fender Bass VI that was out in the 60s-70's. There was also a reissue in 2006. The Pawnshop, however, has some differences, like the humbucker.

Is it stacked? It certainly looks like a standard Jazz Master pickup (not exactly the same thing as a P90).

I have to laugh because what a guitar comes with and what it has when it comes to me are often quite far apart...hell I put a kahler in a 72 tele custom (the real deal, not a re-issue). But then this new ibby may be one exception, I have not touched it. Usually by now I at least add a pre-amp, I figured this guitar would get a stratoblaster...but not yet :shrug:

I used to have an Ibanez ES-335-style guitar with a Kahler. It arrived to me that way, although I did put a Screamin' Demon in the bridge. Eventually, I got ahold of an Epiphone Sheraton (this was back when they were being made in Japan) and its tone blew that Ibanez away. I've blamed the Kahler for that ever since.

That Sheraton together with the 1964 Super Reverb I had at the time (paid only $600 for it) was one of the best rigs I've ever had. I should have stopped there. :-/
