“The Francis Scott Key of Gibson Guitars… Well not quite. It’s a 1976 Gibson Bicentennial Firebird. It was made along with a series of guitars in Gibson’s line to celebrate America’s 200th birthday in the year 1976. Check out the eagle on the pick guard. Now anybody reading this in Europe with be thoroughly unimpressed for a mere 200 years is proverbial blink of an eye in terms of history. These guitars are fun and also came in black which is a bit more rare. I brought this guitar along in 2010 to Santorini and can be heard on the song “Wandering Earth” on the Black Rock album," says Joe Bonomassa, on his [website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-24-1976-gibson-bicentennial-firebird/).more
