What we say:

At A Glance:

The Gibson Firebird is one for those who love vintage era guitars but with a ton of style. The distinctive offset body shape, created by automotive designer Ray Dietrich, has become an iconic sight. Sounding as good as it looks this Firebird features Alnico V pickups, an aluminium Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and a mahogany body with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. If you're after a vintage style guitar that's going to set you aside from the rest, the Firebird is for you!

Features We Love:

Alnico V Pickups

These Firebird Alnico V mini-humbuckers arm the guitar with a ready to rock tone. The hot output is great for bringing extra attitude to big riffs and pushing a valve amp into a crunchy break up. Providing an endless amount of fun, these will be great for any style that requires a bit of extra vigour.

Neck Through

The Firebird was the very first Gibson guitar to feature a neck-through construction. This guitar stays true to the design with a A 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck-through construction that makes for an extremely resonant instrument with an impressive sustain that adds to the overall playing experience.

Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

The nitro finish offers an authentic vintage aesthetic that will sound and look better with age. The thin gloss finish is loved by guitarists for allowing the guitar's wood to breathe, benefiting its tone over time.

Pros:

  • Great vintage looks and tones
  • Perfect for those who want to have a vintage style guitar but without the issues that can come with a guitar of significant age
