The Gibson 2019 Firebird Tribute Electric Guitar in Satin Cherry borrows from the past and infuses some modern flair. Since its introduction, the Firebird has been seen in the hands of many a guitar legend from country to heavy metal. The 2019 model harnesses that same versatility and tonal energy, and adds some deft touches to make this an ideal workhorse for gigging guitarists. Each model is supplied with a Designer Series gigbag and Gibson accessory kit to get your from A to B in style whilst keeping your Firebird in pristine condition.
Classic Firebird body
The 2019 Firebird Tribute is built to the old-school reverse design using solid mahogany, which establishes a rich midrange tonal foundation. The slim body depth pairs with the contoured deep double-cutaway profile to maximise comfortability during performances. The paintwork is protected by a coating of satin nitrocellulose lacquer, which allows the mahogany to breathe and resonate to maximise your tone. A vintage-style 3-ply white pickguard with classic Firebird logo adorns the upper bout.
Durable mahogany neck
Connected to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to the slim taper profile for exceptional comfort. As with the body, a subtle coating of satin nitrocellulose lacquer has been applied to the neck, preventing unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your playing ability during performances. The generous 24.75-inch scale length conbines with the TekToid nut to ensure consistency across the strings and emphasises warmth in every note. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, complete with 22 frets with acrylic dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. The 12-inch fingerboard radius accommodates seamless string bends, lightning fast legato and sleek slide technique.
The 2019 Firebird Tribute 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.
