Description

Details

The Gibson 2017 Firebird HP Electric Guitar is a divine marriage of classic-style - albeit decades ahead of its time - and modern sensibility. This is very much a guitar that respects its roots, but is host to some of the most advanced gear to grace a Gibson. Whether you're jamming with your friends, or blowing the minds of your adoring fans, the 2017 Firebird HP is the perfect partner.

Solid Firebird construction

The 2017 Firebird HP follows the traditional design with standard neck-thru construction, which means that rather than the neck being fitted to the body, mahogany "Wings" are fitted to either side of the neck. The result is improved sustain, a solid and responsive playing feel, and a well-balanced, comfortable instrument. The tonewood combination of mahogany/walnut for the neck and mahogany top creates a tonal foundation that is infused with warmth and depth, perfect for creating thunderous riffs.

The neck has been carved to a Firebird profile, which is a dream for soloists who want the freedom to roam unimpeded at light speed. The neck/body features the newly designed sculpted fast-access heel, which creates a shallower body depth and a more snug feel during performances, improving playing comfort considerably.

Rich Rosewood Fingerboard

Paired with the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are adorned with Mother-of-Pearl trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard is shaped to a 12-inch radius, a measurement favoured by Gibson for many years as it lends itself beautifully to the execution of smooth string bends and rapid-fire fretboard navigation.

Improved G-FORCE auto-tuning

Gibson has equipped the 2017 Firebird HP with an updated version of their G-FORCE auto-tuning system. This sits at the back of the headstock, and gives you access to alternate tunings and adjustment with greater speed and accuracy. The improved synchronized spur gear system operates smoothly and quietly, and boasts a highly impressive 40:01 gear ratio - you can rest assured that once your tuning is set, it will remain that way no matter how hard you rock out.

Versatile Gibson Mini-Humbuckers

The Gibson 2017 Firebird HP 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. The newly designed knurled knobs offer improved grip for greater control during energetic performances.

Stage-ready hardware

The strings meet the body via the chrome-plated aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with titanium saddles and corresponding chrome-plated aluminium stopbar with locking studs. The bridge and tailpiece partnership creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain.

Included Accessories

Each Gibson 2017 Firebird HP Electric Guitar model is supplied with a hardshell case in aluminium to protect your pride and joy whether it is in storage or in transit. With the 2017 model you will also receive a Gibson USA multi tool, premium strap, polishing cloth, and owner's manual to help you to keep your Firebird in pristine condition.
