To Fireman owners

With the bridge being of the TOM variety, is the neck angled? It doesn't look like it in pictures, but I really can't tell.

Yes, slightly.

Thank you. I'm sure it couldn't be as much as an LP though. The angle on those are very obvious.

No, nowhere near that kind of angle. It's barely noticeable .

I worked at the one by the causeway with Ray Y. It was back in 2006/2007.

Re: To Fireman owners

Just curious if anybody knows the precise angle? It would be the same as on the TOM equipped Iceman guitars.

Re: To Fireman owners

Don't know anything really, but I guess you can compare it to the angle found on Gibson SG's. It's angled, but nothing compared to a Les Paul. I'm very sensitive (in many ways, hah) when it comes to the neck/body angle, being a 'Fender' guy, and it always feels akward playing a LP, but SG's feels great. Of course, it doesn't feel like playing a flat Fender/Ibanez etc, but the angle is so little that I barely notice it. I'd guess (again, only guessing) that the angle on the Fireman feels like the angle found on SG's...., without having tried a Fireman.

Yeah I would assume it's somewhere close to an SG. I'm also really sensitive to neck angles. I've owned 4 Les Pauls and always wound up selling them because of that angle. More shallow angles, on the other hand, really don't bother me.
