The firebird studio is one of the most unique offerings from Gibson. It reminds me alot of the Fender guitars and I think that was the idea. The plus of this guitar is it has typical Gibson build quality and a set neck that gives gobs of sustain. The minus is the neck seems alot longer than your average LP or SG so it can be harder to play if you spend alot of time near the nut. A good choice if you want something that stands out in the crowd with a guitar that seems to sustain forever.

I started out on gibsons some 35 years ago and have ran the guitar gantlet (all brands) in that many years. One thing I have learned the hard way is that if the neck width does not fit your hand the instrument will hold you back. The older you get the more restrictive the mismatch. The neck specifications do not reflect the true neck width it is wide! The body had waives in the finish. The hardware is top quality. The pickups and controls are what made gibson gibson. It sounds great. I had to return it. If you have large hands and the fire to match the legendary firebird you will love it. If you have the fire and small hands try the fender american deluxe ash stratocaster with s-1 and modern c neck. I did and it is not going no place without me.

Awesome Guitar

By Dylan Johnson

from Chicago, IL

I love the playability of this guitar. It has that nice, humbucker sound on one of the most unique guitars ever produced. I prefer this one over the Firebird 7. Even Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters likes the studio - has the ebony chrome one, but put a black pickguard on it.

More than i expected

By Truth_with_gibson

from Wyoming

I got my Gibson Firebird about 3 weeks ago, and it was the best thing i have ever bought. I've been lookin at lots of gibson guitars within my budget and decided this one would be the one i order. I wasnt too sure how it would be, but everything-from the playability to the tuners- i got more than what i paid for. This is by far the best guitar i have ever played on. I was worried about the neck being too skinny but my large hands wrap around the neck perfectly and fits like a glove. The body shape fits beautifully and the neck seems to be longer than other guitars. All in all, this was the best decision i have ever made. I highly Recommend it, and since gibson stopped producing these bad boys i suggest you get one soon!

Gibson has done it again!!!

By J dude2000

from New York City, NY

For years, Gibson has been making Quality guitars, But the Gibson Firebird is the icing on the cake. It shreds through riffs like butter. And it is VERY fine looking. If This sight was smart, It would raise the prize. All I am saying is this is the BEST GIBSON I HAVE EVER PLAYER.

Cant put it down

By AGkeyelement

from Tempe AZ

The Firebird Studio is the most addictive guitar I have ever played. I have four custom SG's and a Gibson RD. And owned at one time or another Les Pauls, Explorers, and a host of other solid bodys. I hear people complain about the full size humebuckers and the neck being attached as faults of this product. Forget all that BS. If you pick this guitar up you will have a real rough time putting it down.

Crazy Baby

By crazyguitar09

from woodbridge, va

This guitar is the best guitar i've owned. The quality for this guitar is crazy too. One thing that is very cool compared to other firebirds is the size of the body, the body is more rounder and ways a hell of a lot less! The pick ups on these are also excellent. I recommend this guitar to everyone

Okay, yet awkward guitar

By fenderbender260

from Seattle

At first, it appears that the Gibson Fire bird is a left handed guitar, but it isn't. It has a very awkward feel to it as you play and is hard to play with a slide because of the strange shape. Having said that, this guitar has an excellent sound, like a Les Paul but more bassy. Another problem is that the knobs for tone and volume are at the bottom, not very close to the bridge so it is hard to make quick adjustments. Also, it is a pain to do quick adjustments because the tuning dials are on the bottom of the headstroke. I wouldn't recommend this guitar for concert use, but still a high quality sound for a price much lower than an sg or a Les Paul. I am a Fender fan, and this guitar even fits my requirements for value and character that is often unmatched by Gibsons.

Gibson Firebird

By Shotgun Romance

from Ontario, Canada

this guitar can kick some a**. with a slick design, the double humbuckers drive out a heavy distortion that will drive any guitarist mad. it may be a bit expensive but it is sure as hell worth it.
