OVERVIEW

A SlimTaper neck and a list of high performance features.

The Firebird V 2016 HP re-defines one of Gibson’s most revolutionary electric guitars for a new generation of demanding players. It keeps its legendary neck trough-body construction, while adding an entire set of exclusive premium and high performance textures.

A new and exclusive fast-access heel developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup allows unprecedented access to the high notes – which, combined with the SlimTaper neck profile and new soloist neck width, effectively makes it the fastest-playing Firebird ever made.

Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A pair of mini-humbuckers deliver classic Firebird tones, while genuine mother-of-pearl inlays add the final touch of class to a Firebird that flies higher than ever.
