Gibson Custom Shop Firebird Custom with Gold Hardware - Ebony

available for immediate delivery


Gibson Custom Shop's Firebird Custom is a modernized version of the early '60s favorite. This rare 'bird features the same classic reverse body shape, but with a flat top, gold hardware, and new pickups. In a departure from original Firebird models with mini-humbuckers, this Custom Shop Firebird features a pair of regular-size humbuckers - a 490R and a 498T - to deliver the powerful, spirited humbucking tone Gibson is known for. Its mahogany thru-neck features a medium "C" profile that will put any player at ease, no matter their genre, and with Mother of Pearl block inlays to go along with the guitar's ebony finish and gold hardware, you have a real head-turner in terms of aesthetics. You won't want to miss out on this exceptionally cool Firebird! From its remarkable pair of humbuckers to its eye-catching black/gold looks, it's a top-notch Gibson Custom Shop creation from top to bottom. Includes a Custom Shop hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity booklet.
