I'm sorry, I just had to point out that you prefer your guitar to be rocking and/or rolling 8)

That looks great as-is.

Aren't these the models that were responsible to Epiphone reviving true alnico FB pickups, which then finally caught on at Gibson?
They are alnico FB pickups, yes, modeled after Joe's Firebird I. It sounds great. Better than the ones on Gibson Firebirds of the past 20 years or so (but I admit I haven't played the newest, so if they changed them, kudos).

Ignore my last post, this has a dual action truss rod.

So it turns the nut becomes completely loose and but you keep going clockwise and then it starts tightening...

I posted that after a quick obviously completely wrong visual inspection :fp:

Never heard about 'em sumbitches
