What we say:
The Firebird has been an excellent choice for slightly more flamboyant guitarists for decades now and this model from Gibson USA looks set to make 2019 a vintage year for Gibson electrics.
We love these new Firebirds: they are just as they should be, and this model, in Vintage Sunburst, typifies the instrument.
This Firebird is happily made in the classic manner, with a neck-through construction. The neck itself is a 9 piece ply of Mahogany and Walnut, with a Slim Taper profile. A 12” radius Rosewood fingerboard is also appropriate here, and the addition of classic Gibson trapezoid inlays pleases us too. This is just a great looking guitar!
We are pleased to report that this Firebird is not just about looking pretty. The playability is as addictive and solo-encouraging as the best Gibson guitars. The weight is fine too, considering the size of the instrument: Firebirds are pretty long guitars but they generally sit well on straps.
Gibson have given us what we want with the pickups, too: a pair of chrome-covered Mini Humbuckers are the correct choice here. They have a sound that’s punchy and clear with thickness but not quite the overt muscularity you sometimes find with Gibsons. It’s a very musical and useful sound: chunky but articulate.
The Gibson Firebird has always been a fine choice for Rockers who want to say a little more in terms of stage presence: this particular model will give you all of that and more!
The ’19 Firebird features chrome-plated hardware, an aluminum Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The distinct tone comes courtesy of the Firebird Mini Humbucker Rhythm (neck) and Firebird Mini Humbucker Lead (bridge) pickups. The four control knobs (2 volume, 2 tone) are black top hats with silver reflectors.
The 2019 Firebird features a slim-taper 9-ply Mahogany Walnut Neck, with the aforementioned through-body construction. It has a rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays and traditional rolled white binding. It features a 1.695” wide tektoid nut. Tuning is handled by Grover Mini Rotomatics which line the right side of the headstock.
The 2019 Firebird will come with a hardshell case.
