    Epiphone makes one now, it has the same pickups that comes in the Thunderbird. Dual Rail Minibuckers made by Gibson that look like the old Firebird pickups.

    In my not so humble opinion if there's been ANY innovation going on over there it's with little E not big G lol

    There’s a video on YouTube of Johnny and Derek and the Dominos, in the comment section there’s a guy who said he was there during the taping and the performance was filmed at 1 o’clock in the morning

    I had to look up the Coronet (was wondering if they were violin shaped...which my local pawn has two of...nope).
