Epiphone Slash Firebird Electric Guitar

Epiphone presents the Limited Edition Slash Firebird, designed by Guns N' Roses legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Slash! Featuring a Slash-designed Firebird with a AAA Flame Maple top in a Translucent Black finish, a Pau Ferro fingerboard, Seymour Duncan "Slash" Open Coil Humbuckers, and Sprague "Orange Drop" capacitors.

In 2017, Slash was named Gibson Brands' first Global Brand Ambassador. And to celebrate, Slash has designed his first Signature Firebird for Epiphone! Slash's Limited Edition Firebird features the classic Firebird profile that has gone virtually unchanged since its debut in 1963 and is made with a AAA Flame Maple top and a 3-piece Mahogany body in a Translucent Black finish chosen by Slash.

The traditional Firebird style pickguard is layered white and black and has Slash's "Skull & Top Hat" log in red. The Mahogany neck is glued to the body with a deep-set neck tenon and has a standard 24.75" scale and a rounded custom "Slash" profile. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has single-ply cream binding with Pearl trapezoid inlays, a nylon nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets along with a 2-way adjustable truss rod. The back of the Firebird's traditional reverse headstock has Slash's Snakepit logo in gold.

Seymour Duncan Humbuckers

Slash is a longtime fan of legend Seymour Duncan's hand-wound pickups, and for his new Epiphone Firebird, Slash choose custom Seymour Duncan "Slash" open coil-humbuckers for the rhythm (APH-1) and the lead positions (APH-2). These were Slash's first custom pickups made with Seymour Duncan and feature Alnico II magnets and are slightly overwound for a boosted output. Each pickup has a single conductor cable, a long-legged bottom plate, and a wooden spacer. Controls include individual Volume and Tone pots with traditional Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers along with a Switchcraft 3-way Toggle switch. Tone controls for both pickups also feature Sprague "Orange Drop" capacitors (0.022uF, 600V, 5%), the same capacitors Slash uses on his custom designed Les Pauls.

Rock Solid Hardware:

The Limited Edition Slash Firebird Premium Outfit also features Epiphone's rock solid nickel hardware including a classic Epiphone LockTone ABR Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, Kluson Reissue Firebird Banjo-style machine heads with a 12:1 ratio, a Switchcraft 1/4" output jack, and Epiphone Straplocks. A standard Epiphone hard case is also available.

Overall: I've been on the fence about getting this guitar since it was released last year. Finally decided to get it when zZounds dropped the price almost $300!This is my first Epi, and I gotta say that I'm pretty impressed so far. After a very close inspection right out of the box, the finish is flawless, the setup is great (action is very low but with no buzz at all), sounds awesome after a quick tuneing. The only issue, and I knew about it beforehand having played Gibson Firebirds, is the neck dive. I wasn't very keen on the banjo tuners when I've played them before, but I think that they'll grow on me over time. Also a minor issue was that this didn't even come with so much as a gig bag, let alone a HSC. Because I'm picky that way, I went ahead and ordered the Epi HSC at the same time. And again I gotta say I'm impressed with the quality of the case as well. I think it's a little odd looking with the rounded corners compared to other cases, but other than that it's just as nice as my other cases from Gibson and Fender. Being my first Epi, I've looked at reviews and posts about them and have seen both good and bad, but mostly positive with the more expensive models (like over $600-700 range). As I said earlier, I'm very impressed so far. If I took the truss rod covers off of this and a Gibson and played them side by side, I'd honestly be hard pressed to tell them apart.All this being said, this is actually my 2nd guitar of this model from zZounds. The first one arrived in 2 days (awesome!), but there were a few issues with it out of the box. First, it was obvious that it was a prior return and not factory sealed. You could see that the product box had been taped more than once. Plus once opened, you could see it had been re-packed and not factory packed. That didn't bother me too much, but the other issues did. The finish on the guitar had a ding in the upper horn of the body on the edge. Looked like it was probably done by whomever had it first. Other than that, the rest of the finish and hardware looked great. After plugging in and going through all the settings and controls, the pickup selector in the middle position didn't play both pickups. It acted more like a killswitch, which while not bad, was not how this was supposed to be set up from the factory.I contacted zZounds and they were AWESOME! I explained to them the issues and they immediately sent me a return shipping label. They also said that they would be sure to send a factory sealed replacement. Another great thing about their customer service is that once the returned guitar is scanned by UPS when I dropped it off, they released the replacement one and ship it before they received the return! Don't know of anyplace else that does that. I actually received my replacement before they received my return, how about that! As promised, my replacement was factory sealed and I'm happy to say that this one was flawless out of the box. Thank you, zZounds! I'm extremely happy with my purchase and my experience with your customer service. I will definitely shop with you again in the future and will pass on my experience to all I know who buy musical equipment.

Overall: In 1978 I traded a guild 212 for a '76 gibson bicentennial firebird. Loved that guitar- incredible sound, but lost it to our most deadly enemy- PAWN BROKERMAN- for pennies on the dollar. When I started looking for a replacement I wasn't surprised to see them at $4000 or more. Then I discovered zZounds, and even better, the slash firebird. Arrived within days,and opening the box was like Vince looking into Marcellus Wallace's briefcase. Exceptional finish- nicely setup- and banjo tuners! (always 3x more expensive than mini grovers) all for under $700. When neck dive is the worst thing you can say about it I think you've got a great guitar! I run thru a vox ad50,and mini super beatle 10" cab and it screams ( I guess a firebird would schreeeck?). If you've been hoping for a firebird you could afford go with an Epi. you will be happy with it. Zzounds has been great to deal with - ive also acquired an Epi les paul ultra 3 ( whole other wow)always been able to get good product info, advice and tech support, and the play as you pay program is fantastic- when quality instruments have become so cost prohibitive, it gives young players an avenue to enjoy great guitars, drums,etc...,that us old cobs grew up with. Kudos all around, for zZounds!
