Gibson has given us the best value priced guitar they have ever made with this model. They really jumped it up by giving us two humbuckers and an adjustable wrap around bridge as opposed to a single pick up and non-adjustable bridge for almost the same price This guitar has a very Fender-esque feel to the neck and plays great. I had no problem jumping from my Strat to this guitar. The pickups are hot and growl with the best. Took me two hours to set her up to my playing taste. Action was a little high for me, so i had to adjust the bridge screw height and the intonation but otherwise she was ready to go. The inspection dude did a great job. The Gibson Firebird Zero is a great addition to any guitarists arsenal where quality humbucking sound is needed.
