With one of the most jaw-dropping resumes in music, Skunk Baxter knows about tone. After playing bass in Jimi Hendrix' pre-Experience band, Baxter became a founding member of Steely Dan, then joined hit-makers the Doobie Brothers in 1974. He' worked with Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Ringo Starr, and several others. His weapon of choice? A Gibson Firebird, of course”and with that kind of background, you just know that his Firebird is going to be something special.

The Skunk Baxter Firebird by Gibson USA is built in the tradition of the original œreverse-body Firebird, with its distinctive looks and multi-piece œneck-through-body construction for superior strength and sustain. However, a radically new set of Firebird Mini-humbuckers (designed by Jim DeCola), while the hottest mini-hums yet, retain the sweet, dynamic tone similar to that of Gibson' original ™57 humbuckers. Route three of these powerful pickups through independent on/off and full/split-coil switching for an insane number of variations and combinations, and this is the most sonically versatile Firebird yet to take flight.

The high-quality Tune-o-matic bridge, Lyre vibrato tailpiece, and Steinberger gearless tuners deliver consistent performance on stage or in the studio”and when it come to looks, the high-gloss Copper Metallic finish, black plastics, white fingerboard binding, and pearloid block inlays make the Skunk Baxter Firebird a visual treat. Includes case.
