OVERVIEW

A true throwback instrument, outfitted to maximize playability.

The Gibson Firebird 2017 T is the original bird. Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. Building on the famed Firebird Mini-Humbuckers, Steinberger gearless tuners, and neck-through-body construction, this year's Firebird also makes tremendous improvements in playability, thanks to polished frets and rolled binding. Delivered in a gig bag with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

Poor quality

By Brian

from Texas

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

I was pretty excited about getting this guitar but have been so disappointed since it got here. The quality was just bad. Over spray on the headstock. Fret buzz up and down the neck. Took it to two different people (one being an authorized Gibson warranty repair guy) and neither of them were able to get the buzz out. Buzzed so bad it wouldnt get a proper tune or intonation. Needless to say it's on its way back. Shame too, was a beautiful guitar.

Firebird problems continue

By Kevin

from Easley SC

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

I bought a 2016 firebird last year that had frett buzz up and down the neck. Long story short, I had to send 3 different firebirds back for the same issues. The only way to get rid of the buzz was to loosen the truss rode completely and jack the bridge up to and insane height. Even the certified Gibson repair guy I took all 3 firebirds to was dumbfounded on the consistent lack of quality shipping out the Gibson door. Each time he told me to send it back.
I love the firebird and thought maybe it would be better this year. NOPE!!! I was wrong. Same freaking thing. I'm DONE with Gibson. I hope others have a better experience.

A magical Gibson

By Kytus

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

I don't know if I just got the best of the batch, but this guitar is flawless and absolutely a joy to play. It sounds amazing and honestly, among all of my Gibsons, it stands out as a lovely example of how great a guitar can be made.
