    Does anyone know if there are any current production (or relatively recent production) Gibsons or Epiphones with mini humbuckers?

    Epiphone Sheraton limited edition 1962 and the Sorrento limited edition 1962. They also put out a '66 Wilshire reissue with mini hums.

    I love Epiphone's NY mini humbuckers. Got a spare set sitting in my parts drawer, waiting for my next suitable guitar. :)

    I have a recent Firebird 70s Tribute with the "new" alnico Gibson minis, and I absolutely love them. The 70s Tribute line shared the same mini humbuckers between the FB, SG and LP. Awesome little pickups.

    YUP. Want. Such a cool guitar!

    That G-force stuff can get in the bin, though. :-\

    Modern gibson mini hums are apparently dirrernt from vintage design. They're now blade style magnets.

    I installed a new mini hum into bridge position of my Midtown, and it's incredible. Balanced, lower output, sizzling distortion without being ice picky.

    FYI "Firebird" and "Mini-Hums" are entirely different pickups....in their design, construction and tone.
