Overview

Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany and Walnut SlimTaper Neck, Indian Laurel Fingerboard and 2 ProBucker Humbuckers with CTS Electronics

When it was first produced in 1963, the Firebird became an instant favorite, and now it's back with the release of the Epiphone Firebird and Musician’s Friend couldn’t be more excited. As part of Epiphone's new Inspired by Gibson Collection, the Epiphone Firebird is packed with a pair of ProBucker humbuckers with a 3-way switch, a stopbar tailpiece and Grover Mini 18:1 ratio tuners. With its fast-playing SlimTaper neck construction made of mahogany and walnut and Vintage Sunburst finish, this axe is ready to be played on any stage.

Iconic Firebird Design

Musician’s Friend customers who were fans of the original Gibson Firebird will be sure to enjoy the Epiphone Firebird. Its mahogany construction gives it a rich midrange and sustain. Additionally, its SlimTaper neck made of mahogany and walnut will feel great in your hands, and ensure you can fly as fast you’d like up and down the Indian laurel fretboard. Firebird models were made for rock and roll, so if you’re looking to tear up the stage with a hard-rocking axe, this one is for you.

Powerful ProBuckers

Epiphone ProBuckers have become one of the most talked about pickups in the industry. We at Musician’s Friend think the Epiphone ProBuckers are the real deal. They’re made with 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers—the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. The use of nickel silver works to reduce the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity. It also provides a more transparent and crisp output. Also, with the support of two volume knobs, two tone knobs and a toggle switch, plus CTS electronics, the Epiphone Firebird will give you a plethora of tons with which you can build your own rock and roll sound.

Premium Hardware

The Epiphone Firebird comes packaged with a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece to guarantee you longer sustain and better tone. Additionally, the Grover Mini 18:1 ratio tuners provide you with the most precise tuning capabilities.

Inspired by a 1963 Classic

Though it’s inspired by a Gibson classic, the Epiphone Firebird is built for the modern player. With high-quality and upgraded electronics, premium hardware and distinctive look, this Inspired by Gibson Collection guitar will have you sounding like the rock icons that once inspired you, and that also played this axe.
