Re-voiced AlNiCo V pickups make this Firebird scream.

The Gibson Firebird, originally introduced in 1963, as Gibson's first neck-through-body design, rocks a reverse body and headstock design. The traditional 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck-through construction provides rich, warm tonality and incredible sustain. A slim taper neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard and acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays offers fast and effortless playability. The newly refreshed Firebird is outfitted with the designed AlNiCo V Firebird pickup to recapture the scorching output and searing tones of the iconic voice for which the Firebird is known.


  • Gloss nitro-finished mahogany/walnut neck-through construction
  • 24.75”-scale 9-piece neck, bound, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Dual Gibson AlNiCo V Firebird humbuckers, hand-wired electronics
