Crafting the 2019 Gibson Firebird
When crafting this newest version of the Firebird, Gibson have gone back to the Firebird’s roots and ensured some well-loved, classic features remained intact.
First, it has that striking reverse Firebird design that really stands out, great for creating instant stage presence.
Next, the Firebird 2019 benefits from neck-thru construction with the 9-ply Mahogany and Walnut neck running through the body, giving you for improved sustain and resonance.
Atop the slim taper neck is a Rosewood fretboard with traditional rolled binding so it looks awesome and feels great to play.
Giving the Gibson Firebird 2019 its fantastic and unique voice is a set of mini-humbucking pickups.
Found in both the bridge and neck positions, these mini humbuckers give you more chime than the standard full-size humbuckers you’re used to.
A pickup toggle switch lets you choose how to use the pickups while two volume and two tone knobs in the form of black top hats with silver reflectors allow you to really shape your sound to perfection.
High Quality Hardware
On the body of the Gibson Firebird 2019, you’ll find a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge providing great results with awesome sustain.
A self-lubricating Tektoid nut is installed at the top of the neck, providing further enhanced sustain and a nice brightness to your tone.
Up on the headstock, there are six Grover Mini Rotomatic tuning machines offering extremely precise tuning of your strings thanks to their great turning ratio while holding your strings securely in tune.
