One look at the Gibson Firebird and you know it's not your average guitar. Unique and backed by the Gibson name, you can bet it plays like a champ. The Firebird features a reverse body and headstock design, resilient Gibson build, and dual Firebird mini humbucker pickups. This guitar is for the player that wants a unique and powerful axe, from one of the most trusted guitar builders in history.

Reverse Body and Headstock Design
Introduced in 1963, the Firebird was the first guitar from Gibson which sported a neck-through body design. It also did something most other guitars didn't, and still haven't – reversed the direction of the body and headstock. This Firebird is crafted from Mahogany, with a slim taper, 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck that runs through the body. This affords unparalleled sustain and warm tonality. Perhaps that's why it was so beloved by Johnny Winter.  

Resilient Gibson Build
From top to bottom, the Firebird is crafted to be playable. The body shape may look unusual, but its curvy contours are still a comfortable fit. The rosewood fingerboard gives a smooth feel and is lined with 22 medium jumbo frets and acrylic trapezoid inlays. It also sports an aluminum Nashville tune-o-matic bridge with stop bar tailpiece. The reverse headstock has Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners, aligned 6-in-a-row. To top it all off, this guitar showcases a Firebird symbol on the 3-ply pickguard.

Dual Firebird Mini Humbucker Pickups
The Firebird is known for its bright, tight voice. You can credit its dual mini humbuckers for that. Each pickup is voiced to fit the established style and sound of the Firebird. With volume and tone knobs for both pickups and a three-way toggle switch, the Firebird is ready to rock.
