I just bought my Firebird about 2 weeks ago and all the reviews hold true. The Alnico humbuckers give amazing sound. From hard rock to clean strumming, this guitar never loses its rich tone. If you have a chance to actually come by one of these, don't pass it up.

I would have loved to buy this guitar. I had my sights on the rarer Korina version. Some obvious differences for price points are a slab body instead of neckthrough with wings attached as a real firebird. Alnico hummers instead of mini's, which were rather nasally no matter what amp or setting, and the TUNERS. Here is the catch on this guitar. Steinberger tuners. Most say they are better than sliced bread, that's because they bought the things.... They are a very nice design, very nice hardware, very fitting on this style of guitar, but staying in tune would have been a nice thing. Try as I might, regardless of tuner used, they just slip out of tune with a few strums or bends. I was so interested in the guitar and stated my flaw, that the store who knows me, changed the strings just for me to see if they could move it.. No joy. Instant slippage and out of tune. Improve this one aspect, retro grade to regular tuners or similar or get these right and you would have a great guitar.

Jay Vinton's string issues

By Ed Cook

from Northeastern USA

I used to play a 1990 Gibson Firebird; now my son owns and plays it. Right now I am scrolling through the Epiphones, thinking of getting one, maybe an SG. Since I am looking at all the solid body Epi's, I came across the Firebird. Maybe the tuning issue is not with the tuners, but that the strings (at least those in the picture) are wound around the posts backwards! This is a common event with players and set-up people who aren't familiar with Firebirds. Since the headstock is backwards anyway, the strings should go straight out and over the post, not under it, as seen in the picture. Then use whatever locking technique you normally use...

A real firebird

By Marcus McFall

from Boalsburg PA

This guitar is so nice! The strings on this guitar are fantastic right out of the factory and the setup is amazing! I have a Gibson Les Paul and this guitar sounds just like my gibson. The only problem that I have is there is some fret buzz on the lower strings but other than that this guitar is fantastic!

Epiphone Firebird Studio Worn Cherry

By DAVID RINI

from Boston, MA

This was a great purchase. Wanted a back-up "beater" guitar to hang on the wall next to my jam station... the Epi Firebird did the trick. Pickups & slab body make this axe scream - when wanted, also plays very well for jazz & blues. Great overall quality for the price - just be sure to tighten up ALL hardware. Strap keys, input jack, etc. loose - no problem. The factory strings are a little scratchy - once again, no problem.... If you are reading this you must be interested - just order it, you'll be glad! Also recommend the EPI matching case for basic storage & local travel.

This Bird Flys High

By James O.

from houston,Tx

I order the firebird through the store here in Houston because I always like the shape. Could not afford a gibson bird. But i was not at all disappointed. This bird screams. I'm also told this is a collectors item. so their will not be many made.

Aint No Gibson

By Mike

from Downers Grove

I ordered the Epiphone Firebird Studio through Guitar Center. When I recieved it, I was very excited to get it home and play it. Very cool looking guitar, with plenty of nostalgia. Unfortunately after I played it a while, I noticed it kept going out of tune... This was a bad sign to begin with, and after close inspection, I noticed there was a small crack on each side of the upper neck. I returned the Firebird immediately. I'm not sure if these cracks occured during shipping or what? I would be very carefull about purchasing a "Worn" edition Epi. It seems they are made very brittle, and with an extremely long neck, you could bet with very minor tension you will most likely experience the same cracks my Firebird had. Save the extra cash and buy a Gibson Firebird.

THIS FIREBIRD ROCKS!!!

By Adam Duplessie

from New York, NY

I used to be a die-hard Fender fan...until I switched to this bad boy. I wanted a Gibson but didn't have the cash so I opted for an Epiphone. This Bird rocks as hard as any guitar out there. If you play classic rock/hard rock/rock n' roll or any sort of rock music...this Bird should be in your arsenal. I say again, THIS BIRD ROCKS AS HARD AS ANY GUITAR OUT THERE!!!!!!! Nuff said.

the firebird

By travis dee

from rockford il

I bought this guitar about a year ago, used, via this website. I was drawn to the firebird a few years back because I wanted to be different and not just play a les paul or a stratocaster like EVERYONE ELSE. As a cheap trick fan, I was drawn to explorers and flying v's, but this one's not as big and pointy as the explorer, smoother than the flying v, and i personally think it looks more classic and has style. I took the plunge and bought the real Gibson FB V from my local GC and enjoyed it very much. I wanted a cheaper one to actually play out and about, and this was all that was available. Like everyone else, I don't really like the "worn cherry" finish or the lack of a raised center, but the rest of this machine is awesome. The pickups and electronics are fine, good, no problems, it's an Epiphone and carries the quality - I know that it's not the same as a Gibson, but I don't care. It'll neck-dive if you don't use a heavy strap or re-locate the pin. The steinbergers stay in tune fine and are easy to adjust when tuning, but not so fun when re-stringing. I find a wrench to tighted and vise-grips to pull the string tight helps a lot! I know it would seem that I complained a lot about the negative aspects, but the positive outways as this thing does not dissapoint.

Epiphone's Secret Weapon!

By Jeff Lynn

from Grand Island, Nebraska

Any good guitarist out there knows whether or not a guitar is a great player or just a wall hanger. After purchasing the Epiphone Firebird Studio from Guitar Center I must admit that I fell in love with this instrument immediatley. The QUALITY of this guitar amazed me. I did not expect Gibson quality from the more affordable series Gibson makes. This guitar features HOT Alnico humbuckers, Steinberger 40:1 tuners, a SOLID MAHOGANY body with a set neck and the trusty Tune-O-Matic bridge. I have played many Gibson Les Pauls and Firebirds that I don't feel match the playability of this guitar. For the MSRP of this guitar, one would be a fool to purchase the "big brother" at about a 1,000 times the cost! Sustain your GIBSON tone forever with this Secret Weapon!

Tastes Better Than Frosted Flakes

By Rudy Reynolds

from Rockton, IL

I ordered this guitar online @ guitar center and I have to say, I was a little worried because I hadn't ordered anything online before. But If you have any doubts, remove them, because the tone was amazing. It is perfect for classic rock and blues: when the tone nob is turned all the way up, it gets a nice, bright and clear tone, good for songs such as Secret Agent Man, Johnny B Good, and others, and when you turn it down a bit it is perfect for mid to high gain songs with power chords such as Working Man (one of my favorites) Cities On Flame, or Iron Man. All in all, a fantastic guitar, and I cant wait until I get an overdrive pedal.
