2015 Gibson Firebird 7

$1,799.00

A Like New Gibson Firebird 7 with original hard shell case!!  This beauty doesn't look like it has ever been played and is in immaculate condition!!

The “reverse-body” Firebird has been beloved since the early ’60s for its radical looks and rich tones. The Firebird 7 takes the elegance of top-flight model and adds fatter, creamier tones with a triple of full-sized ’57 Classic humbuckers. The original neck-through-body, 9-ply construction with mahogany body wings establishes a solid core for optimum resonance and sustain, which translates to everything from thumping rock crunch to singing, throaty blues tones through these great PAF-style pickups. A Lyre vibrato tailpiece enhances both looks and sonic versatility, while the reversed six-a-side headstock carries Steinberger™ gearless tuners for optimum precision. Add a one-piece rosewood fingerboard with acrylic block markers, traditional Firebird pickguard with phoenix graphic, and wrap it all in a luscious Blue Mist finish, and this is a bird you won’t want to cage.
