    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

    Finish is cracking where neck meets body, and the grain of the wood shows through. I guess it's a candy color but not very attractive. I thought of returning it but it was not that much to begin with.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

    This guitar was great out of the box. This guitar has a more bassy tone to it than I thought. Sort of a les paul type sound. Overall, this guitar is great for beginners and pros alike. Straight out of the box, the action and set up is very good. I will say that they should include a manual on using the Steinberger machine heads. And also, the hardshell case is HUGE! So make sure you have room in your car! I wish Epi would made this guitar in more finish options. I love this guitar and I hope that you will too! But I have to give this guitar great props for its looks, sound and overall performance. Great job Epi!

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

    To start off I will say I love the style of the Firebird! Thats why I bought this axe in the first place. I knew buying epiphone the fit and finish wasn't going to be as nice as my USA made Gibson Les Paul but this is kind of a project guitar for me.

    Overall the guitar is a awesome for the price!

    Pros- I love the style, color, and feel of this guitar! The tuners on this guitar are also top notch compared to other Epiphones I've played.

    Cons- The Biggets Con for me was the setup on the guitar from the factory. Luckley I can do all that work on my own and don't have to send it to a shop to do it. The action was super high and the intonation was out. Kinda hard to believe they would ship it like that.

    The pickups in it are rather dull and leave something to be desired. I pretty much knew that though from reading other reviews. So I've already bought new (to my preference) pickups for it.

    The only other thing I could complain about it is there is a small crack in the clear coat where the neck meets the body. You can barley see it.

    To sum it all up I still love this guitar and after I get my new pickups in it I will love it even more and probably play it ever gig I can along side with my $2000 Les Paul!

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

    I've always wanted a Firebird but didn't like the balance or sound of the mini humbuckers. When epiphone made one with a set neck for 1/4 the price I bit. The 1st one had a very poorly cut nut that made the strings out if alignment with the pickups and neck. The next one was better but had a gouge in the back and a ding on the botton edge. Both had some fret buzz, were poorly set up and the grainy finish allowed the poor craftsmanship show though. It plays and sounds ok. The neck is a bit bulky.

        Great classic rock look! Plays fairly well right out of the box, thin body and chunky neck make for a comfortable contrast!
        Glad I bought it!

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Firebird Studio Electric Guitar:

        Robin Crosby and Nikki Sixx are my favorite bird users; I like the classic mini-humbuckers and I was going for the Gibson FB tribute; kind stumbled upon the Epi and I like because of the full humbuckers. No middle "riser" in the body (boo) but the slab body feels very well balanced. Has traditional FB headstock (nice)with Steinberger tuners (same on the Tribute); nice neck with dressed frets (should have binding)
        Standard pickups for this price, but they will be the first to go. The paint? I like the color, but this is a metallic paint applied as if it is a stain so some wood grain peeks through. It would look better if applied full on metallic like a car finish. There are no other FBs out there so this is the best budget choice.
