As Gibson celebrates its 120th Anniversary, few guitars embody the spirit of revolutionary style and pure design innovation like the Firebird. Forged amid the chrome and tail fins of Detroit in the early '60s, the "reverse bodied" Firebird has since become a genuine icon of rock and blues, and a timeless classic.
The Firebird for 2014 from Gibson USA captures all the look, tone, and feel of the great vintage originals, backed with the cumulative experience of the world's most respected guitar maker to create a powerful, versatile guitar for today's demanding player--and all at an unbeatable price for a hand-made-in-America electric guitar.
Classic Firebird specs include the nine-ply mahogany and walnut "through-neck" construction with mahogany wings, the reverse six-in-line "beak" headstock, and the clear yet powerful Firebird mini-humbucking pickups. Innovations like super-efficient Steinberger gearless tuners and undercut frets over binding for added playing surface make this Firebird a better performer than ever, while a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret marks this exclusive edition.
Body and Neck
The nine-ply mahogany and walnut through-neck construction form a unified neck and body core for unparalleled strength and enhanced sustain. Two mahogany "wings" complete the iconic "reverse-body" styling. The slim Firebird neck profile is fast and comfortable, and the bound rosewood fingerboard carries 22 frets undercut over the vintage-cream binding, traditional trapezoid inlays, and a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and Electronics
Gibson's two Firebird mini-humbuckers generate a bright, yet powerful, tone that takes you from twang and jangle to all out crunch and scream. They're wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.
Hardware and Plastics
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain. Steinberger(TM) gearless tuners provide highly efficient tuning while preserving the headstock's stylish lines. A white pickguard with Firebird graphic, black top-hat knobs with silver inserts, and a black truss-rod cover with Gibson logo complete the package.
Case and Coverage
The 2014 Firebird comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
