Grade-A construction and playability to match

Gibson didn't skimp on quality when they built this Firebird. From its beautiful mahogany body and super-slim 9-piece mahogany/walnut neck to the rock-solid hardware, this instrument is pro quality through and through. The upgraded Steinberger Gearless tuners give you super-stable tuning at every gig. You'll appreciate the way this solidbody electric feels in your hands - it plays like an extension of you rather than a piece of equipment. That's the sign of a great guitar. Your Gibson Firebird is waiting for you, right here at Sweetwater!

Wield authentic Firebird sonic punch

Gibson's Firebird is a modern update of the original Gibson model, boasting all the vintage mojo - including a pair of mini humbuckers that give you the bright, bell-like jangle of single-coils, with the midrange complexity and punch you more associate with humbuckers. All, of course, with no noise!

SlimTaper neck feels great

The Gibson Firebird 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 move down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Firebird'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.

PLEK'd for precision playability

This Gibson Firebird 2016 T feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to PLEK processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.
