This 2010 non-reverse Firebird is in immaculate condition and shows no noticeable signs of play wear. The neck profile on this instrument is very beefy as compared to vintage Firebirds but is extremely comfortable and feels similar in size to an R9 but with a slightly different shape. We believe this neck shape and nut size are much more playable than the original mid 60s non-reverse Firebirds (but we love those, too!). The bridge pickup in this guitar is very angry and the neck pickup in this guitar is very warm, round, and full sounding. The Gold Mist finish is stunning paired with the Gibson lyre engraved vibrola tailpiece. This guitar includes its original hard shell case which is also very tidy and the original Certificate of Authenticity from the Gibson Custom Shop.
This Firebird stands out amongst the rest in the looks department and also tonally. The majority of the Custom Shop non-reverse Firebirds that we've seen have been the three pickup model and we've seen far less of the two pickup version around. This is an all around incredibly cool 'bird.
