Yeah, mine is fairly top heavy, but I adore it. Neck-through is nice, and I love having 3 full-size humbuckers in contrast to the usual mini-humbuckers that most Firebirds have. Can recommend.

i'm not talking about neck size, idk i've never played a rickenbacker, but everyone i know who has played a rick has told me they're shit. for example i have a friend who was literally given a 12 string rick guitar and still says he hates it and is planning on giving it back lol. I love their look though, i'm very tall so neck width, length etc doesn't bother me
my fave is the natural wood finish they did a couple years back that shit looked hot, had no idea rickenbackers would look so good in natural finish

i love the 3 pickup look. i didn't realise when i bought my firebird studio that they had humbuckers instead of minis, i love the sound though they're extremely hot i had to adjust the distance because the neck pickup was just hot as fuck. i want a firebird non reverse for the 3 minihumbucker look. I like red and blue and i honestly can't decide between them which is the main reason i haven't bought it yet. cardinal red looks amazing and so does pelham blue, one's more flashy but the other is more classic. i just can't pick

can i also add that george harrison had the best taste in guitars. everyone knows that amazing telecaster but this les paul is incredible, no idea why gibson don't release this colour on les paul

>use the one which does the job best
with technology in amps, pedals and production, this is a stupid question. why wouldn't everyone play those hideous guitar organs, or use those weird pedals that make cat sounds or violin sounds instead, you can make any guitar sound like any other guitar nowadays, it's only the purists that say it has to be straight from the amp, and then what amp?? a selmer little giant or a boss katana lol use your head mate stop being such a contrarian. guitars are cool and like handbags to women if you dont like gear porn then go back to your traps
