The Gibson Firebird T 2017 - The Original Bird
Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks.
Building on the archetypal Firebird Mini-Humbuckers, Steinberger gearless tuners, and neck-through-body construction, this year's Firebird also makes tremendous improvements in playability, thanks to polished frets and rolled binding.
Delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.
