Gibson 2016 HP Firebird Electric Guitar

The Firebird V 2016 HP re-defines one of Gibson's most revolutionary electric guitars for a new generation of demanding players. It keeps its legendary neck-through-body construction, while adding an entire set of exclusive premium and high performance features. An exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup allows unprecedented access to the high notes - which, combined with a SlimTaper neck profile and soloist neck width, effectively makes it the fastest-playing Firebird ever made. Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A pair of mini-humbuckers deliver classic Firebird tones, while genuine mother-of-pearl inlays add the final touch of class to a Firebird that flies higher than ever.

Gibson USA's wider soloist dimensions and fast-access heel make this the fastest bird you've ever played. Gibson's titanium zero-fret nut drops action as low as you'll dare to go, and it's all perfected by a precise Plek treatment and hand-finished final setup.
The archetypal neck-through-body construction with a nine-ply neck and body core and mahogany wings presents the reverse-body Firebird's legendary depth and sustain. A pair of Firebird Mini-Humbucker pickups present an outstanding blend of power and clarity, while a titanium nut and titanium bridge saddles allow it all ring like never before.

A thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish, G-Force tuners, genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, improved knobs and plastics, and an exclusive labor-intensive hand-applied process for a smooth high-gloss nitrocellulose finish all add up to superior quality for optimum looks, feel and tone.

- Next-Generation Gibson G FORCE Tuners
- Sturdier, noiseless toggle switch

- Soloist neck width

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A great go-to platform for several musical styles"
Overall: This is my my 6th or 7th guitar and first Gibson. The Firebird HP is a step up from my electric 6 string. I hadn't paid attention to the G-fore tuners! Whoa... preset tunings that happen at the click of a button! Easy playing Soloist neck is gloss and just the right nut/neck for me. So far, I've done some practicing while using Guitar Rig 5 and Garageband on MAC through Komplete Audio 6. Amazing sustain. Awesome build quality. I don't gig or take this with me on trips, so gig bag helped me save. Setup from factory was great except for a buzzing 6th.
Style of Music: Rock is tops, but talented musicians can earn my respect in a heartbeat, no matter the style/genre. Most often I'll practice to

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
