The Firebird 2017 T features the radical neck-through body design that Gibson made famous in 1963. The neck is made from a nine-piece mahogany and walnut laminate that extends from headstock to end pin, forming the central core of the body to maximize sustain and resonance. The body wings are made from Grade-A Mahogany to complete this sleek design. With its nitrocellulose finish and traditional appointments such as the pearloid trapezoid fingerboard inlays, beveled headstock with black central section, and Firebird pickguard motif, today's Firebird is visually indistinguishable from its predecessor of the early '60s, but it roars like no 'Bird before it.
Although the Firebird 2017 T visually stays true to auto designer Ray Dietrich’s original vision from the early 1960’s, this current edition has some cutting edge modern appointments. The original mini-humbuckers have been updated to employ high-output ceramic magnets in place of the Alnico originals. Gibson's 495R and 495T mini-humbuckers are each constructed with coils wound directly around their dual ceramic magnets for added clarity and definition. These give a brighter tone and higher-output.
Chrome hardware on the Firebird 2017 T includes the tried and true Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combo. The banjo tuners have been replaced with gearless Steinberger 40:1 ratio machine heads for extreme tuning precision. The 2017 Firebird T comes in a protective Gibson Hardshell Case.
