Overview

The Gibson Firebird 2017 T is the original bird. Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. Building on the famed Firebird Mini-Humbuckers, Steinberger gearless tuners, and neck-through-body construction, this year's Firebird also makes tremendous improvements in playability, thanks to polished frets and rolled binding. Delivered in a gig bag with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

Why did I wait so long?

By LAB

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

It comes with a case which was a bonus. Like the SG the price hike includes hard-shell case now.
Awesome guitar, sustain great. Classic with beautiful Gibson craftsmanship.

  • Typical Gibson G-String Tuning Issues

  • Light/Classic Rock

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

While I love all types of guitars and models, I have to say I think I've finally found "my" guitar. Primarily playing this through an Orange setup, it provides a smooth, warm and crunchy tone that could make a wolverine purr. Cleans sound crisp on the bridge as well as the neck, with a more sparkling low end feel on the bridge. Slap on some drive and gain and the bird pierces through. The body style isn't for everyone, but anyone looking for a truly standout instrument that has great tone needs to look no further.

My only complaint is the typical G-String tuning. Every Gibson I've owned (and it seems to be common) is the G-String has trouble staying in tune. After a proper setup the problem isn't nearly as prevalent, but it does happen. Not enough of an issue to send it back, but something to keep in mind for future shoppers. If you've played Gibsons, you'll be used to it.

Always wanted one, got it, keeping it!

By george

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

Great deal on an iconic guitar. Sounds and plays great out of the box. Case is very heavy duty, and heavy. Action is a little high but that's how I like it. Intonation spot on. After close inspection I could find 0 flaws. She's a keeper!

Beautiful finish with great attention to detail

By The Steve

from LV, NV

Verified Buyer

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

It felt great unpacking a guitar that has never been on a showroom floor. Gibson's attention to detail shines as you go through the included inspection paperwork with an included photo of the guitar on the work bench. This model of Firebird not only came with all of the bells and whistles on the guitar, but all the accoutrements including a Gibson polishing cloth, a Gibson leather strap, and a full Gibson multitool. Les Pauls in this price range aren't as well polished as this incredible Firebird.
