The Gibson 2019 Firebird Electric Guitar gives a nod to the past whilst incorporating modern appointments to deliver a truly unique rendition of this legendary model. From blues to metal, the Firebird has been utilised by many players who adore its enviable sustain, epic tones and unashamedly cool style. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case and accessory kit to keep your pride and joy safe and in pristine condition.
The 2019 Firebird adheres to the classic reverse design that features neck-thru-body construction, which is where the model's superior resonance and sustain comes from. Boasting a 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck design shaped to an inviting slim taper profile, the Firebird is a joy for the fretting hand to explore. The mahogany body reinforces the enduring midrange tonal energy created by the guitar, whilst offering balance for a comfortable feel in the hands. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets that are decorated with acrylic trapezoid position inlays to guide your way. The 24.75-inch scale length and 12-inch fingerboard radius come together to establish a consistent feel across the strings, whilst allowing you to lay down intricate technique with effortless grace. Traditional rolled binding along the neck guarantees seamless transitions between each and every fret for lightning fast performances.
The body and neck have been treated to a subtle yet resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which preserves the consistency of the finish for as long as possible, whilst enabling the woods to breathe and resonate. A vintage style white pickguard with classic Firebird logo adorns the upper bout.
The 2019 Firebird is equipped with a pair of Firebird mini-humbucker pickups fitted between the neck and bridge positions. The Rhythm pickup in the neck produces a densely packed response infused with warmth that translates into gloriously saturated tones. The Lead pickup in the bridge cuts through with emphasised treble for searing solos and chunky palm-muted riffs. Control comes in the form of independent volume and tone controls for each pickup as well as a three pickup selector toggle switch, which allow you to tailor the response to suit any musical style. Black top hat controls with silver reflectors play their part in adding to the stylish aesthetic.
The body is home to the hardworking aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely to guarantee a seamless connection that is designed to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with Grover mini Rotomatic tuning machines that work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision.
