Overview

A 'Treasure' You Can Take Home

Based off a 1963 Gibson Firebird-1 which was given on loan to Joe by a close friend, the axe soon became an iconic instrument in the hands of an iconic player! Joe loved the guitar so much, he named it 'Treasure'. Now Epiphone have teamed up with the blues legend to bring us this stunning model. The 2016 Limited Edition 'Treasure' Firebird.

This is a guitar totally dedicated to serving the needs of a serious player. The very first thing you'll notice is the fact that this guitar has just one pickup and no Tune-O-Matic bridge usually found on Epiphone/Gibson models.

Epiphone's Brand New FB720 ProBucker

The new Epiphone FB720 Probucker has been specifically designed by Epiphone to capture the extremely sought after sound of the 1960's Firebirds used by the likes of Eric Clapton and Brian Jones. In this sense it does a tremendous job! The articulation, response and overall tone of these new pickups is authentic to the originals and they sound fantastic.

Minimal Controls Maximize Playing

They say that the more simple something is, the less there is to go wrong. Well that is true, however that isn't really the motivation behind this design choice. Much like the original Firebird's, this is designed to really put the player at one with the instrument. a single volume, a single tone and one awesome pickup is all thats needed for an astonishing guitar solo.

Where's The Tune-o-matic Bridge??

Don't fret (pun absolutely intended) because the Hardtail bridge of this Firebird is molded to keep perfect intonation thanks to its super-innovative wrap around design. Instead of the strings running over a Tune-O-Matic and then into a Hardtail, this is it. The strings run to a height adjusted Hardtail which resonates so hard you could measure it on a rictor scale! You can really feel this guitar react to the player which makes it, well, a phenomenal thing to play!

Complete Neck-Through Construction

This guitar is constructed true to the original Firebird's which means that the top of the headstock, right down to the strap pin on the bottom, is just one single piece of wood! Epiphone then attach the iconic 'wings' on afterwards to deliver unbeatable resonance. Everything we've mentioned so far adds up to a guitar which really sings and if it's good enough for Joe Bonamassa, it's good enough for the likes of us too!
