Firebird Question

Postby nullard on Sat Dec 04, 2010 8:10 pm

Hi guys,

Just a quick question about my Firebird V from 2000.

I've just noticed that the bridge pickup output level is much lower than the neck's and was wondering if it was something common to all reversed firebirds, or if it was mine that was not so normal?

Pickups are stock.

Many thanks for any help here.
if it's too loud, you're too old!

That doesn't seem right to me. I have two FB VII, and I don't recall the neck pickup being louder than the bridge pickup. Although I don't use the neck pickups very often. You could lower the neck pickup a little to ballance them out.
