    Hiya forumers,
    New here, from Northern Europe, have some guitars (own a 5129 Electromatic with Dearmond 2000s, which I love) and a truckload of gear, guitar player for 30 years, songwriter/ producer (but still an amateur), likes to hang and nerdy guitar talk.

    Will try to find a good mix level here, cheers!

    How ya doin'?
    DeArmond 2000s are some of my favorite pickups. They sound really great thru a Vox.
    Don't forget---new guy buys the first round.

    Wow, that's a welcome, just found the "like" pot! Virtual drinks for everyone, heck just have 2!
    You're right, it's the Firebird red edition. I've added a vibramate and locking tuners to it, and it plays like butter and holds the tuning really well now. Very happy with the Dearmonds too, it's like fat single coils, but not as dark as a p90. I run it with my AC30, very good match for sure.
