This hard-working rendition of Gibson's original Firebird focuses on what matters most to the working guitarist: tone and playability. It is light, nimble, fast and extremely comfortable to play. The 496R and 500T humbuckers are absolute powerhouses, ready to rock the house with the grind and aggression that go beyond traditional Mini-Humbuckers.

Was sceptical at first when I ordered the sunburst model to add a little variety to my les Paul & SG collection. Was pleasantly surprised at the way it plays and balances. The pick ups sound good and are versatile. I was so impressed that at the end of the year when the price dropped drasticly I picked up a second in white. Only complaint is that stupid PCB that Gibson use now. Replaced pots and caps with individual after market PIO and 500k.
