    Gibson Firebird Volume/Tone Knob Layout

    Anybody know why Gibson used a different volume/tone knob layout on the Firebirds? For those that haven't played a Firebird, the knobs closest to the strings are the volume knobs while those closest to the rim are the tone knobs. On a LP or SG, the knobs closest to the strings are the neck pick-up volume and tone and those closest to the rim are the bridge volume and tone.
