The Gibson 2016 Firebird T Electric Guitar in Vintage Sunburst delivers the cool and sophisticated energy of a solid body, packing a powerful punch in a unique and sublime design. As we've come to expect from the team at Gibson, this Firebird is built to the highest standards of quality, sporting hardware appointments that make it ideal for regular gigging guitarists and session players.

Solid Neck-Thru Construction

The 2016 Firebird T has been treated to the standard neck-thru construction, which provides an exceptionally strong playing support along a generous 24-3/4-inch scale length. The neck material is composed of a 9-ply mahogany/walnut partnership, which offers a sumptuous feel in the hand, whilst the '60s slim taper profile allows you to play at lightning speed.

Rich Rosewood Fingerboard

Paired with the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are adorned with pearloid trapezoid inlays to aid in your navigation. The fingerboard is shaped to a 12-inch radius, a measurement favoured by Gibson for many years across their instruments as it lends itself beautifully to smooth bends and seamless transitions across each string.

Mahogany "Wings"

Fitted to the neck are mahogany "wings", which create the instantly recognisable Firebird design. The mahogany adds to the rich timbre of the guitar, providing depth and energy with a roaring mid to low-end growl. The body has received a striking vintage sunburst that is protected by a coating of nitrocellulose to prevent premature damage from affecting the finish.

Versatile Gibson Humbuckers

The Gibson 2016 Firebird T is equipped with a pair of 495R (neck)and 495T (bridge) mini-humbucking pickups, which are each constructed using coils wound around dual ceramic magnets, creating a pair of sonic powerhouses that leap out with energy. The bridge pickup is wound with thicker gauge wire to create a "hotter" output, great for executing chugging riffs and searing solos. Control over your tone comes in the form of a three-way pickup selector switch, as well independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. Whether you select either pickup individually, or both simultaneously, Gibson has calibrated each one meticulously to guarantee a sublime response every time.

Gig-Ready Hardware

To polish off this exceptional guitar, Steinberger's gearless tuners have been fitted to the headstock to hold strings steadfast throughout each and every performance. The winning partnership of a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece has been fitted to the body to maintain intonation precisely. If you're seeking an iconic model that is bursting with energy, then this is the guitar you've been looking for.
