Overview

Gibson Firebird Studio, Vintage Sunburst Finish, P-90 Pickups, Includes Hardshell Case

Originally produced in 1963, and designed by legendary car designer Ray Dietrich to resemble those classic tailfins present on mid to late-50s cars, the Gibson Firebird has been a mainstay in their catalogue ever since. These stunning guitars have found their way into the hands of countless rockers and blues players over the ensuing decades, and are guaranteed to turn heads with their stunning looks and the simply sublime tones they produce.

Inspired Design and Tones

With the all-new 2018 model Firebird Studio, Gibson are offering you you a classic instrument with the original "reverse-body" shape, and it's an absolute stunner. Featuring traditional dot inlays, an un-bound torrefied granadillo fingerboard, standard non-reversed six-in-line headstock, a set of P-90 pickups and a gorgeous Vintage Sunburst finish, this guitar not only looks great, but sounds it too.

Gibson P-90s

A precursor to the PAF humbuckers, the P-90 is a legend in its own right. These specially-wound Gibson single coil pickups produce a raw, powerful tone that sits somewhere between a traditionally bright single coil, and a warm humbucker, and helped to define the Blues and Rock n' Roll genres in their formative years.

Sometimes referred to as "Soapbar" or "Cobalts", the P-90 can still cut through most types of modern music, and is just as articulate when played with an overdriven signal as it is with a clean one.
