    Amazing sounding guitar, you really get that vintage gibson humbucking sound especially through a great amp. Don't be fooled by mini-humbuckers, with the middle one on you get that full humbucker sound, with more versatility. Amazing feel, looks, sound. Tuners stay in tune for ever. Sounds great with distortion. From a pro who has played the gibson model, don't spend 4 times the amount, save and by a epiphone and a good amp and some nice effects. I can't say one bad thing about this guitar. Neck feels great, really smooth, long, jumbo frets, really really fast. It's just amazing, I can't get over the great sound, I'm coming from a fender strat standard, and this thing if I didn't know the price, I'd think it's much more costing then a strat. It's great you will definitely be satisfied, no matter what type of music you play. Sounds great when playing classic rock like the allmans, or the lead guitar on beatles. Sounds great when playing ska or really clean open position or barre chords. Also sounds great with blues, country or jazz. You can also get that really twangy sound like on a tele which is great for beatles rhythm guitar and such. You can get a slide sound with out using a slide piece. You can get any sound you want without effects. It's rediculous how versatile this guitar it is. I've played fender strats, teles, les pauls, sgs, prs's and nothing is comparable to this axe. This thing screams when you add a little gain or a lot of distortion. It's amazing what you get out of the three alcino-v's. You wont be sorry, buy it now. It's worth every penny of it.

    This is not a bad axe, however, it is not one that I would recommend to anyone in the hard rock genre. It can produce a warm bluesy type sound, but it has virtually no gain whatsoever. The low end is just not there. The highs are okay but it's mostly loaded with midrange. Also, don't use the whammy bar unless you want it to go out of tune. In the right hands, with the right type of music, it sounds just fine. In the hands of a hard rock guitarist, it sounds like muddy water!

    ENCORE FOR MORE!

    By Tazyman23

    from North Carolina

    One word, WOW! This baby can play about anything from blues, classic, or light metal. It can't get that death metal sound. The finish is sweet! I have the vintage sunburst. When someone glances at it they say somethiing about it. It's a beautiful, but heavy guitar so get straplocks. The only difference between this and the Gibson is just the hardware and logo at the top. The Maestro Vibrola Tailpiece is the bomb just wait for the strings to settle in after 2-3 days. This axe is a great bang for your buck. Epiphone Firebird Reissue 1963 VII Electric Guitar is a honor to play!

    My 'Bird

    By TelMan

    from Columbia, MO

    I've had my Firebird three or four weeks now, and I am very pleased with it. Use of the whammy bar is not condusive to reliable tuning, but I knew this before I bought the guitar. Everything else about it is better than I expected. The tone, the cosmetics, the whole thing. Ive played Gibson Firebirds and do not see that they are better enough to justify the price difference. This instrument is a very good value for the cost.

    Great Axe, great deal, great online store!

    By Rob-Nuom_

    from Houma, LA

    After seeing the overwhelmingly positive reviews on this guitar, I decided to get one as a Christmas gift. I have owned a Gibson Explorer, Flying V, even an early 60s Les Paul original (SG shape) with vintage PAF Humbuckers. I can tell you with all honesty, that the PAFs were the only pickups that sounded as good as this axe. For versatile tone, only my Strat competes. I use a extra wide bass strap and it helps with the slight heaviness of the superb neck. I feel like this guitar was made for me. Thanks for making this purchase too good to pass up!

    A great axe a year later....

    By Rob-Nuom_

    from Houma, LA

    Short and sweet....this is a great axe and an even better deal than when I bought mine a year ago. I'm glad I got the sunburst before it was discontinued.Sound and workmanship on a par with Gibson.

    AMAZING

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    this guitar is great. it plays and looks like a dream. the whammy works well if you don't do anything crazy. the only problems ive had with it is it feels a lot different than a strat, and you can't play high pitched solos because the body gets in the way. once you find your way around that, this thing is AMAZING.
