    Purchased a bucket list guitar, a Firebird VII in cardinal red. My first bird and first mini humbucker guitar, I'm excited. Hasn't arrived yet but below is a pic. More pics to follow as soon as it arrives.

    Congrats on the Red-Bird

    I know the feeling when the bucket list of 'must have' guitars gets smaller

    Congrats. I like the eye-catching color and the matching headstock.

    nice! have one in sunburst. you should look into getting a freeway switch to control the three pickups. some don't like the initial sound because the middle is loaded by the tone all the time but with a freeway switch you don;t get that and can get all the positions of the les paul and strat configurations.

    Man that's funny you mention the freeway switch Imerkat, I was scouring the net about the firebird a few days ago and ran across some talk about the switch. I'm probably gonna give it a go, it's an easy enough mod.

    Finally showed up. Is there a longer time than waiting for music gear to arrive? :ohno: Have a few mods to do yet, roller bridge and MAYBE some banjo tuners. To be continued...
