    I have been jonesin' for a mini-humbucker guitar for a while for a Johnny
    Winter vibe,but i'm not that crazy about Firebirds. What other choices
    would one have in a production instrument? Any help at all would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Anything that has a standard P-90 can easily be "fixed" for a mini.

    You could also go with a Tele that has a mini-humbucker in the neck... there are several models equipped like that.

    There was a Hamer model in the '90s with mini-hums. Very plain looking guitar with no frills. The name escapes me...help me out...

    Collings 290 with Lollar minis (replaced Lollar P90s)

    Hamer Special with Seymour Duncan minis (replaced original P90s)

    As you can tell by the pics, I love minihums, particularly Lollars.
    I also get 4 conductor wired minis to split coils.
    The split coil works especially well with the Lollars

    just my 2 cents....

    I had mine for sale for a while, but I just dropped a set of Dimarzio mini-hums in it and I think I'm going to keep it for a while. I've owned a bunch of Hamers and this is the most ergonomic of the bunch.

    Daisy Rock?

    Seriously, +1 on the Tele with a mini-hb neck. I had that for a while and it works REALLY well.

    I just bought one of these, mostly for having a guitar to switch between the piezo sound and the regular electric tones. It works great for that and is a really nice guitar, the only thing I don't dig about it is the non-traditional placement of the bridge pickup, it's impossible to get any spank or twang out of it and the middle position is a little odd sounding too. I have the same problem with Reverend guitars. But for what it does, it works great.
