The legendary Firebird, reborn in an insanely high performance version
As innovative as 1963 original, The Firebird 2017 HP combines the assumed modernity of its original design and Gibson's latest and greatest technological and design fits.
On top of its neck-through construction, mini-humbuckers and iconic headstock, the addition of our soloist neck, polished frets over binding design, full chrome hardware with improved ergonomics and upgraded electronics really takes the Firebird 2017 HP over the edge and into the future.
Delivered in a classic Gibson case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.
