  • Mini humbuckers provide authentic Firebird punch
  • SlimTaper neck feels great and plays like a dream
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

Gibson's latest Custom Shop additions include new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. Gold waffle-back tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom 20th Anniversary Firebird VII one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

Mini humbuckers provide authentic Firebird punch

Gibson Custom's 20th Anniversary Firebird VII gives you a trio of toneful pickups packed to the brim with vintage mojo. These mini humbuckers give you the bright, bell-like jangle of single-coils, with the midrange complexity and punch you associate more with humbuckers. All, of course, with no noise! Add this to the classic Maestro vibrato and you have some awesome ear candy for your fans.

SlimTaper neck feels great and plays like a dream

The Gibson Custom 20th Anniversary Firebird VII 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.
