Excellent guitar. Perfectly setup right out of the box. The new pickups sound fantastic! The maple neck and poplar body make for a light but well balanced guitar. Has serious sustain and tone isn't overly bright, but very well balanced, despite the maple neck and lightweight body.

Neck has just the right bite to it. Great for blues, dirty blues and classic rock. Gets a bit muddy under high gain, but this isn't a guitar designed for metal. Neck has a great, creamy tone for jazz cleans too. Does a good job of hitting Slash tones through my Blackstar.

Gibson let down

plays great, pickups very bright for humbuckers. cheap pots and switch ( imports). Finish is not the best. Tuners are no name, but good.

Feels Very Cheap

By Mike the Mover

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird Zero Electric Guitar:

This thing feels very cheap as soon as you pick it up. I honestly cant believe that Gibson put its name on this thing. It feels like a $100 no-name guitar. If you are looking for a guitar in this price range, that is decent, and you like Gibson style, go for an Epiphone Les Paul Trad Pro or something like that instead of this thing.

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird Zero Electric Guitar:

A bit disappointed that the Firebird Zero is smaller overall that a Firebird. It is shorter and the body is smaller. There was not one on display to look at, I ordered it sight unseen.

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird Zero Electric Guitar:

I picked one of these up in store and I honestly am pretty satisfied with it. The size of the guitar is small, very small. The weight of the guitar is very light as well. The finish of the guitar is comparable to a similarly priced Fender IMO.

I had to do a setup on mine when I got it home and it plays like a champ. I like the tone on the Dual Slugs, especially the neck pickup. I play this through a Laney Cub with a Cub 2x12 under it and this does quite well. I have compared the tone on this guitar with some of my other guitars, (2016 Gibson SG Faded, 2017 Gibson M2, 2014 Gibson SGM, 2015 Gibson SG Special, 2004 Fender Showmaster, 2014 Fender Jazzmaster Blacktop HH and a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Studio) and the tone was right in the middle of the pack (Les Paul was tops, Gibson M2 and SGM were the bottom). I do find that it is a bit on the bright side due to the Poplar wood but rolling the tone off slightly on the guitar cures that.

I love the light weight of this guitar as it is very easy on my back. I can easily play this through an hour set with no pain at all.

I like this enough that I am aiming to get one in each of the 8 colors it is being released in. Definitely worth the money but I would encourage you to try one in store before buying one online as it is small and some people will have a big issue with that.
