Firstly, the Steinberger tuners are fantastic. They stay in tune for months, which is in part due to Epiphone's fantastic stopbar tailpiece and Tune-O-Matic bridge combination. The pickups are true to the Firebird's roots, pumping out some soul-crushing tones in both nech and bridge positions. The low end is fantastic, but the higher frequenceis are a bit muddled, but other than that, this guitar serves its namesake well for its blueseyness. The one issue I had with mine is that the bridge tone pot was shorting out the pickup, causing very low output from the bridge. 15 bucks and a new tone pot and all was well. This guitar is as beautiful as it is wonderful to play, much due to its satin finish, which is both nice to look at and nice to play, as it makes the neck very fast and comfortable. Overall, this is a great guitar, and if you want to stand out from all those Strats and Les Pauls, this is a great option.

I bought this guitar as I thought it would be an inexpensive way to get a Firebird back into my arsenal. I bought a 1976 Gibson Bicentennial Edition Reverse Firebird in '76 and sold it a few years back. I've been playing for 40 years now and suffer from G.A.S. so I've seen my share of guitars good, bad, and in between. This guitar is mostly what people claim it to be except for one glaring flaw; the body is not made of solid wood. It certainly is not a solid mahogany body. Most likely (and sadly) veneer over some type of particle board. The satin finish to me seems somewhat lifeless. Knocking on the under-weighted body yields a distinctly disappointing hollow sound. This Firebird deserves better. I can accept the set vs. through neck, but a cheap body on an otherwise nice guitar was unacceptable. I choked up the shipping cost and returned the guitar.

Review of Firebird

By David McKenzie

from Washington State

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I'm giving this guitar a five out of 10 stars mainly because I was very disappointed in the workmanship, or lack there of. I ordered and recieved this guitar a few months ago and I initially loved the feel, and I still do. My disappointment was when I got it home, pluged it into my amp and instantly noticed problems with the pickups. Upon further examination I found that the wiring was totally messed up and the bridge pickup wasn't even hooked up. So instead of playing my Firebird at a gig I had to take it in to be completely redone. So I'm wondering who the "inspector" was that gave this piece of crap the okay to be sent out. I know this, my money has to be spent on quality items and I should expect the product I buy to work. I won't be giving Epiphone my business any more.

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar as a back up to my Gibson firebird. Ive owned one for 4 years now. It plays awesome, sounds great, and I love the tuners. I moved the strap button to the back of the guitar like how my gibson is. Cured the neck diving. I would recommend buying this guitar. Great instrument for intermediate to advance player.

Big dissapointment

Ask me a question

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar for my birthday a year ago, and I have to say, I was really disappointed, for two reasons: It doesn't stay in tune well, and I hate how it plays compared to my $250 Epiphone G-310 SG. The SG kicks this guitar's butt. I would NOT recommend this guitar to anyone.

BUY THIS GUITAR.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I've read some of the other reviews on this guitar and honestly i can say that you people are way to picky. There is nothing wrong with this guitar. I bought this guitar 3 years ago and I can honestly say i have no need to buy another.It may be a little bottom heavy but its a "studio" guitar which means its meant to be played sitting down. Not playing 3 hour sets, although this guitar does deliver if you need it for that purpose. it playes wonderfully, looks beautiful and sounds amazing. My former banmate who plays nothing but schecter said this was an amazing guitar and he couldnt believe i got it for the price i did. If you are looking for a great guitar look no further. Here it is

Excellent Guitar

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I'll tell you the reason people don't like this guitar: It wasn't built for Metallica. This is a killer guitar. The neck pickup is perfect for classic to hard rock-style soloing. The neck pickup is perfect for something along the lines of Albert King style blues.This guitar has not let me down yet. Great deal.

Looks arn't everything

By qyy__tiG5

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

I'v had this beautiful guitar(sunburst) for 5 years now. But it just hangs on my wall. The neck is heavy, you have to hold it up from falling down when your strapped in. The alinco minis suck bad in my opinion, they sound really cheap. But the worst part is it goes out of tune almost instantly after using the whammy. I'd rather play my sons squier mini.
