Gibson Firebird Studio Guitar Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews
for those who care about sound and feel, but want to save on cosmetics.
With its “reverse” body style, Gibson’s Firebird series of 1963 took conventional guitar design on a 180-degree turn.
The Gibson Firebird Studio has the classic reverse-shape body, but with a conventional set neck keeping the traditional set-neck design, mini-Grover tuners on the side of the headstock, a tapered body and the traditional Gibson dual-humbucker sound. Mahogany body and neck. Its studio finish and simpler hardware retain Gibson’s high-quality sound and feel. Optional gold or chrome-plated hardware on these musical instruments. Black reptile pattern hardshell case with dark grey plush interior, black shroud, and silkscreened silver Gibson USA logo. It’s both alternative and classic, and it’s a Gibson.
For those who care about sound and feel, but want to save on cosmetics.
