Honestly, I've wanted a Firebird I for years, but they're extremely rare and hard to come by. Most non-vintage ones are Custom Shop and very pricey. When I saw ZZ offering them in 2 super rare custom colors (as well as the standard sunburst), I had to pull the trigger. Wow! What a killer rig. It's louder unplugged than some acoustics I've owned. The sustain from the neck-through design and wrap-around bridge is crazy! Still dialing in the mini bucker, but it's nice and crunchy with the gain up and still cleans up well. The best feature is the neck. The overall detailing is IMO Custom Shop level quality. Super fast with perfectly rolled fingerboard edges. Slim 60s style but with more width and substance than most others I've owned. To me, the neck was perfect right out of the box! I've owned tons of killer guitars, newer and vintage and this one stands up to all of them. I think my other guitars will be gathering some dust!
