You have to be fucking kidding me. I'm just waiting for Jaden to come in here and admit that he stole an Ibanez Fireman from a store and wrote his name on the headstock. :D

Man.. it looks absolutely stunning. And for the price. I envy you now more than ever. Excellent work Jaden and HUGE congrats Sharp!! Please make some vids and take more pics when it's in your hands.

id hardly say its a big difference, the ibanez one hooks a little more.... it doesnt look bad at all...

the fact that it says Jaden on the headstock is a much more noticeable difference... so whats the problem?

The headstock looks good to me. I would say the contrary, the different shape of the pickguard is more noticeable to me.
But no it's not a problem to me, just something different. I thought Jaden would have done the exact same shape for the pickguard.

Man, you must be so pumped to have that thing in your hands. Seriously, when it arrived in you must have jizzed in your pants taking it out of the case......

Can't wait to hear the vid..... enjoy....

So i sent Paul an e-mail of this thread and he replied in such detail! Just goes to show how much his fans matter to him.

Here is what he had to say.

Wow! That's awesome!

I continue to play my Fireman a lot, and here are a couple things that I've discovered:

* I rarely use the TONE knob on my humbucker guitars (which is why many of them don't have a TONE knob at all). But on single coil guitars, the TONE knob can be quite useful. If I set it around "3", it warms up the sound without getting too muffled. I don't know what value the capacitor is or the taper of the pot in my guitar, but it's pretty sensitive in that lower range. There are a lot of good sounds between 2 and 4.
Try adjusting your TONE knob by ear and see what you get.

* The Marshall Vintage Modern amp is nice in combination with single coils. The "BODY" knob really thickens the tone.

* I like 10-46, tuned to standard tuning on the scale of the Fireman (24.75"). This shorter scale gives a little bit looser feel, so you can still bend strings, but the thicker strings give you such nice tone and sustain.

* Play it live! That's where the magic happens!

Thank you,

Paul


I'm buzzing now :) Almost as much as when I met him.

To really show it off I think you should use it to record a solo for the forum jam that is going on right now. :wink:
