About Gibson Firebird
The Gibson Firebird is a magnificent original design Gibson solid body electric guitar. Designed in 1963 after Gibson hired a car designer to inject some new life into their catalogue, the hot-rod inspired Firebird featured a bold design with a backwards headstock and a 'softened Explorer' body. Normally made with a through body neck (though sometimes with a set neck), the Firebird is a smooth and sustaining instrument that is as popular with avant-garde sound makers including Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera as it is with Bluesy soloists such as Johnny Winters.
As with other Gibson models, the Firebird is typically made with Mahogany and has two humbuckers (often of the 'mini' variety as on 70s Les Paul Deluxe models) and a hard tail with a 24.75" scale length, the standard for Gibson.
Several model variations exist, such as the 'non-reverse' Firebird with opposite cutaways to the standard model, Studio models and Anniversary Firebirds. Gibson Custom Shop also produce some incredible reissue models. As authorised Gibson AND Gibson Custom Shop dealers, we have first refusal on some of the greatest Firebird guitars available.
