Gibson Firebird Studio Reverse '70s Tribute Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Firebird legacy
Created by legendary automotive designer (and visionary) Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Gibson Firebird literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. You can bet heads turned when any guitar player took to the stage with one of these unusual instruments strapped on. Players like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, and Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) found their combination of looks and sound to be perfect for their needs.
Gibson's redesigned Mini Humbuckers deliver broad and balanced tone
When Gibson reinvented their Mini Humbuckers, they gave guitars such as the Gibson Firebird Studio Reverse '70s Tribute a wider and more expressive range of tone. Dual steel blades and single Alnico V magnets provide you with more output then Gibson's previous Mini Humbucker design, and yet they still give the Firebird Studio the vintage chime and open sound you want. And thanks to their calibrated windings, you'll be blown away by how well the Mini Humbucker bridge and neck pickups complement one another. You'll get both excellent rhythm and lead tones from your Gibson Firebird Studio Reverse '70s Tribute!
SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
The Gibson Firebird Studio Reverse '70s Tribute sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, bulky necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Firebird Studio's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.
