    Does anyone know if the body of a Firebird guitar is the same size as the Thunderbird bass body? Or is the Thunderbird a bit larger?

    The bass bodies are usually larger due to the longer neck, but the Firebird body size is big enough to probably use a bass neck.;)

    I know that some of them use the same minibuckers.

    A real Firebird, yes. There are always options though.
