FinishLine-Matt

By FinishLine-Matt

from DFW, TX

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.

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.

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.
