As part of a very limited run of only 200 instruments for 2017, the Gibson Custom Firebird Custom electric guitar won't be available for long. Gibson has taken the iconic Firebird platform and given it a distinctive look, Custom Shop appointments, and 490R/498T humbucking pickups for exceptional tone. The combination of ebony finish, rolled fretboard binding, and gold hardware sets this Firebird apart from the pack. CTS control pots, a Switchcraft toggle switch, and a hand-wired harness are ready for a lifetime of reliable performance. Don't miss your chance to step up to Custom Shop quality with Limited Edition appeal, with the Gibson Custom Firebird Custom.
Gibson's 490R and 498T humbucking pickups are similar to Gibson's '57 Classic pickup, but with more pronounced upper mids. They have that classic smoky Gibson tone, with just a bit of extra juice to help cut through the mix.
