It looks just like a Telefunken U-47!

Sweet. Would love to get a set of those tapered pickup rings for my Firebird.

Cool, and good review.<br /> <br /> Are the mini hums the traditional model, or the newer version? I have a 2012 Deluxe that came with the traditional pups, but found the bridge to be a bit too bright and mellow, so swapped it for a SD "Seymourized" hotter version.

Those SD minis sound great - thanks for sharing that.

Thanks for the comments guys...its a great guitar, quite a departure for your regular strats, teles, and les pauls !<br /> <br /> Prof: As to the pickups I would think they are the newer ceramic ones as opposed to the alnico originals... they sound ok to me, I also have that SD mini in the neck of my Hot Rod Tele great pickup.<br /> <br /> Paul L: I hadnt noticed the rings till you mentioned them they are indeed quite cool
