OVERVIEW

High performance features in a legendary Firebird.

Firebird 2017 HP the legendary Firebird, reborn in a high performance version. The Firebird 2017 HP combines the assumed modernity of its original 1963 design and Gibson's latest and greatest technological and design appointments.

On top of its neck-through construction, mini-humbuckers and iconic headstock, the addition of the Soloist's neck width, polished frets over binding design, full chrome hardware with improved ergonomics and upgraded electronics really takes the Firebird 2017 HP into the future.

The 2017 Firebird HP delivered in a classic Gibson case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.

      • I play it at church

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird HP Electric Guitar:

      This guitar was purchased in tribute to my father-in-law who passed away last October. It was selected because he told me a story about how in the 70's he was ready to buy a light blue Pontiac Firebird when they found out that my mother-in-law was pregnant. Due to the fact that this baby came as a surprise, 16 years after their last child, maternity coverage was not in place. So he never got the car. I ordered this guitar in December even though it was on back order. I finally received the guitar on June 9th. The first thing I want to do here is tell how impressed I a with the Musician's Friend staff. Every time I called to check up in the guitar, they took the time to check all avenues to get me a definitive date. They were very patient, helpful and extremely service oriented. The guitar came on Saturday so I decided to play it at church on Sunday. This was the first time I had ever used the G-Force tuning system. It was so cool! One of the challenges at church is the humidity change from my music room. After the guitar sat during the sermon, just a couple of strums at it was good to go. I would say the neck and playability is close to a Strat, however, I like it better than my Strat. I play straight through the system with a Line 6 AMPLIFi pedal and a Line 6 wireless guitar system and the pick ups were responsive and clean. It may have taken Gibson 6 months to make it, however, it was worth every day of waiting! Again, hats off to Musician's Friend!
