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'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've wanted one of these for years, a few weeks ago I traded another guitar for a 2006 model. First off, I thought I should point out that this guitar might not be for everyone. If you've been playing on a Fender for your whole life and you think, "it's time to switch to a set neck so girls will like me", maybe go with an SG or Les Paul. This has a wide neck at the nut and sort of heavy C shaped neck, it's a bit unbalanced so unless you have the strap height up a little higher, it's going to feel a bit awkward for a while. Having said that, I was over it in a few days. The Firebird is a great platform if you're looking to hot-rod something. It's a fairly substantial feeling piece to start, as with most guitars in this segment there are a few things that might need to be adjusted or setup initially, but it's not garbage. My guitar is now sporting Grover machine heads, a humbucker sized P90, graphite nut and strap locks. With less than $200 worth of parts and some know how (not much, seriously), I have a pretty good all around guitar. A hard shell case is available, I would say that's a sound investment as well.

        Great Guitar

        from Omaha, NE

        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.

        New Bird!

        By Bond

        from New England

        Comments about Epiphone Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

        Just picked up a brand new Firebird except in a beautiful Korina finish, I don't think they made many of these and other than the finish I believe they are the same as this studio model.The guitar came well setup with only the slightest setup requiredit sounds great for blues-rock and yes it is just a touch neck heavy but I may try and "weight" the bottom a little to balance it out since it's a pretty light guitar.The neck is amazing and the tuners once adjusted properly will not the guitar go out of tune.Overall I think the newer Epiphones are really great, in fact I have been collecting many of them and play professionally and gig regularly with them.

        Excellent Guitar

        from Undisclosed

        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.

        BUY THIS GUITAR.

        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
