This 2018 pre-owned Firebird Studio is just lovely. She is in pretty much mint condition, with just the minimum of playwear. The action is superb & has real retro mojo at a fraction of the cost of many other similar Firebirds on the market. She has a unique sonic character with her P-90 pickups for a raw & beautifully textured sound. She sleeps in her equally mint brown case, with gorgeous plush red interior. Comes with all factory docs & bench photo etc.

The Firebird was introduced in the 1960s to break the mould. Inspired by the iconic tailfins of the American automobiles of the time, Gibson have adorned this model with P90s and a vintage sunburst finish that’ll transport you back to a pivotal time in rock’n’roll history.

Body & Neck

The body is solid mahogany, and as with a lot of Gibson’s 2018 models, it boasts luxurious resonance and weighty low-end emphasis. The neck has a 24.75″ scale length with a Torrefied Granadillo fretboard, which some say adds a little extra brightness to the otherwise full-bodied tone, whilst retaining the familiar smooth texture of rosewood.

Pickups & Electronics

A double-barrel combo of P90s ensures that the mahogany sings with a throaty, full-bodied tone, while having a broad enough range to give you some of the bite you’d expect from smaller single-coil pickups. These are ‘soapbar’ style P90s, perfectly in keeping with this beautiful instrument’s all-American look and sound!

Hardware

Gibson’s trusty aluminium stop bar and Tune-O-Matic bridge make another appearance – understated in look but efficient and hardy in functionality. Black top-hat knobs and a black pickguard (complete with Firebird logo!) are the final components of this radical instrument that oozes old-school attitude.
