    My thoughts are: very close probably.... the only sound impacting difference being the size, shape and number of the chambers.

    Pascal, sound-wise, how does it compare with the Firebird (which I assume has mini-humbuckers)?

    Like night and day.
    Pup's on Les Paul are about 10 times hotter than the mini Lollars, but the latter, while thinner sounding, have a sweet growl to them. Awesome under a slide too.

    Thanks Chris. And good eye! Grover indeed, they're stellar on the hold in tune.... (and I pull on strings pretty hard).

    In this world there are always those who march to the sound of a different drummer. The lucky ones hear a drummer who can actually keep a beat and knows what a groove is. These wayward marchers go off and break boundaries. Blistering leads on an acoustic. Purple spandex, and proud of it. Gibsons on a Guild forum. But the world is a better place for their pioneering efforts.

    Thank you and congratulations!
