Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Firebird I

The fourth Joe Bonamassa signature model! Epiphone proudly presents the Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa Treasure Firebird-I Outfit. Featuring the ProBucker FB720, a one-of-a-kind faithful recreation of the original early 60s Firebird pickup. Plus Kluson's superb re-issue of the original Firebird/Banjo style tuners! The Treasure Firebird-I comes in two color finishes, Polymist Gold and Tobacco Sunburst and includes a premium custom gigbag and a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity signed by Joe Bonamassa.

A Treasured Vintage Firebird Reborn

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa Treasure Firebird-I Outfit was closely modeled after Joe's original 1963 Firebird. Joe worked closely with Epiphone's legendary luthiers in Nashville, Tennessee to recreate his rare single pickup Firebird that was made in the first year of the guitar's production at the Epiphone & Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. And according to Joe, the Epiphone Treasure Firebird-I far exceeded his expectations. "The guitar is called 'Treasure' as it's based on the '63 Firebird that was graciously gifted to me 4 years ago," said Bonamassa. "We A/B'd the Epiphone with my two original 63s. The Epis play and sound better! Ugh... I just paid $12,000 for one!"

Reverse Firebird body shape with Original Thru-Neck Construction

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa Treasure Firebird-I Outfit features a mahogany body with a 9-piece laminated mahogany/walnut neck with a period-correct early 1960s rounded "C" profile measured after Joe's original. Epiphone improved on the vintage neck design by including a dual action adjustable truss rod. The Firebird was the first electric guitar to feature thru-neck construction along with the iconic Reverse Firebird(TM) body shape. The neck has a rosewood fingerboard with a 14" radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, classic dot inlays, and a 24.75" scale length. The Treasure Firebird-I comes in two color finishes, a classic Tobacco Sunburst and Polymist Gold exclusive to Joe's Signature Firebird. The historic-styled white and black-layered pickguard has the classic Firebird logo. A premium custom gigbag is included.

Epiphone ProBucker FB720 - "The Epis play and sound better than the originals!"

The Treasure Firebird-I is powered by the new ProBucker(TM) FB720 pickup, reconstructed at Epiphone to the original specifications of Gibson Firebird pickups from the mid 60s. Accept no substitutes! The ProBucker FB720 has two Alnico II bar magnets used as blades in coils along with a steel reflector plate to achieve the classic Firebird tone of the 60s. Because the DC resistance is around 7.85Kohm, the ProBucker FB720 provides a clean, brighter output with incredible touch sensitivity and a warm low end compared to mini humbuckers, which are used in most Firebird reissues. Controls include Master Volume and Master Tone with Gold "Top Hat" knobs with metal inserts and pointers.

Epiphone All Metal Hardware with Exclusive Kluson Reissue Firebird/Banjo Tuners

The Treasure Firebird-I features all-metal hardware including an adjustable wrap-around Lightning Bar bridge and tailpiece and Epiphone's heavy-duty 1/4" output jack. Plus, the Treasure comes with Kluson(R) Reissue Firebird/Banjo Tuners with a 12:1 ratio (14.6:1 winding rate), the best and most accurate reissue of the original Firebird tuners from the early 60s. The Kluson(R) Reissue Firebird/Banjo Tuners are mounted on a beveled Original FirebirdTM Headstock with a black truss rod cover with the Epiphone logo in gold.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Treasure is the right name for this Extraordinary Gem"
Overall: I own the Vintage Sunburst version of the Joe Bonamassa Treasure Firebird I. I've wanted a Firebird I for quite some time: the only option (until now) has been to buy a Gibson Custom Shop Firebird I or a used original... Both are very high prices for my budget. This new Epiphone model is wonderful: it's so much like the real thing, AND it can be purchased for an extraordinarily low price. Close your eyes and play, it feels almost like the real thing (Yes, I've played one: the difference being mostly lacquer on Gibson and Poly on Epiphone). Open your eyes and put it on your favorite playing chair and look at it from a few feet away. Other than the Epiphone logo, it is hauntingly like the real thing. I love mine enough that I spent time taking pictures and writing a review here: http://theguitarreview.com/2017/02/13/superbird-epiphone-joe-bonamassa-firebird-treasure-first-review/ Enjoy your playing!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Firebird 1 Polymist Gold"
Overall: Received the guitar just days before the concert, Joe signed it for me. The guitar is everything they say in the specs! It came with a FULL setup, ready to play. The neck was fully rolled and very comfortable, good balance (no "dive" issue). Plugged in, the pup is very expressive, solo can be heard with nuance and clarity. Feels good in the hands. The Hard case is as good as any I have seen - buy it!
Style of Music: Rock Blues Jazz classical ragtime originals
