One of the best Gibson has ever made
One of my favourite axes. Sounds somewhere in between an SG and a tele. Took my a while to get a second hand one in nice condition as thee babies are pretty rare in Europe. My has the Kluson tuners (instead of the modern Steinbergs) so it is pretty heavy on the head, prone to dive. The Firebird is like a wild horse, you have to learn how to ride it.
It's a wonderful guitar
Mine is a 90 cardinal red, I've added a Bigsby on it with a Vibramate, played with 11-48. Ringing, beautiful crunch tones with tons of harmonics, great for slide. It's a bit heavy but you get used to it, better with a large strap. Well, it's a Firebird :)
Best and most versatile guitar ever made by Gibson, period.
If I need to describe the Firebird in one word it will be perfection. It hands down best and most versatile guitar ever made by Gibson. I use Mojotone Johnny Winter Signature Firebird pickups in my Firebird. Through my Vox AC100 CPH the Firebird can pull off anything starting from the The Beach Boys to Diamond Head.
Pat uses this as his go-to grunge guitar. his looks just like this one, but with an added in/out of phase mini toggle switch and tortishell pickguard. recommend I do if you can afford it. best heard on our cover of Nirvana's "Lithium".
