Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar

Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. Building on the archetypal Firebird Mini-Humbuckers, Steinberger gearless tuners, and neck-through-body construction, this year's Firebird also makes tremendous improvements in playability, thanks to polished frets and rolled binding. Delivered in a Gibson gig-bag with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

Body and Neck
Neck-through-body construction with a multi-ply mahogany/walnut neck and body core, mahogany body wings, and a Firebird slim-taper neck poflie. Rosewood fingerboard with cream binding rolled over the frets, and a Tektoid nut.

Pickups and Electronics
Firebird Mini-humbuckers (495R and 495T). 2 volumes, 2 tones, 1 toggle switch.

Hardware
Chrome TOM and aluminum Stop Bar. Steinberger gearless tuners. Black top hats with silver inserts.

Additional Specs
Premium leather strap, Gibson multi-tool, polishing cloth.

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Unfortunately GIbson isn't what it once was."
Overall: Straight out of the box it was obvious there were some problems with this guitar. The first thing I noticed was an issue with the paint on the back of the guitar. The back grooves had quite a lot of bare wood showing through. I was disappointed, but not deterred. The next problem I noticed was the the strap button on the back of the neck had been drilled in at an angle. Enough to dent the body in the process, again I was more disappointed. Lastly, one of the tone pots will keep turning after "10" and reset itself back when you let go. After that, I was really unhappy with my purchase. 2 of the 3 things were fixable yes, but for this to even leave the shop was unacceptable. This is definitely the worst "new condition" guitar I've bought over $1000. Compared to some of the other Gibson models, this model is not expensive. I have 2 other GIbson Les Pauls that are great guitars. This could have been just one that slipped through the cracks, but I'm not so sure. Aside from that - the guitar itself is great. It looks stunning in person (pelham blue). It's a blast to play, and I'm glad I picked one up. For what it's worth, I did reach out to zZounds about the issues, and they did give me a partial refund on the item. I was very happy with the end result. Aside from that, the guitar is a blast to play. The pelham blue looks absolutely stunning in person. I'm very glad I picked this guitar up, though I must admit the zZounds customer support team is the biggest reason why.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not too good to be true"
Overall: I bought this because I love the color despite the negative reviews but I was still skeptical. Let me say that I had a few of the same issues. Whoever signed off on this from the factory must have known they were about to be fired or laid off. Polishing compound all in the creases and the headstock. Paint chipped off by a tailpiece stud and so thick on the "Made In USA" stamp it just looks like dimples in the paint instead of words. The BIG issue though is the completely unacceptable fretwork for a guitar at this price range. The action had to be set very high to avoid buzz. I had to re-level the frets to make it right. Fortunately, I'm a luthier and have the tools and skill to do this at home. I shouldn't have to and anyone else will have to pay to get this fixed. Pair this with having to buy a hard case separately (the gig bag scared me with this headstock) and it's not a good deal. The pickups sound great and it fits comfortably. I was nervous about neck dive but that isn't an issue. The metal they used in the bridge and tail piece are very light. It feels cheap but this thing sustains better than anything I've ever played so who knows. I get lots of complement on it's looks. My $349 Squier from China came with perfect action and fret work. Why the heck is that not the case with this USA Gibson standard model? I have owned many Gibsons and have been usually very pleased, but someone was drunk on QC day for this model.
