A Legendary Guitar for the Modern Age

The Gibson Firebird 2016 HP solidbody electric guitar sports the classic Firebird look, plus modern Gibson appointments. Mini humbuckers serve up classic, cutting Firebird tone and ample sustain, enhanced by the neck-through-body construction. G-Force automatic tuning makes it easy to experiment with alternate tunings and is great for fast tune-ups between songs. The modern Soloist neck profile sets a wider playing foundation, perfect for fast playing and frantic fretwork. And a Plek Pro fret treatment ensures precise playability, intonation, and tone. Between tone, playability, and performance, the Gibson Firebird 2016 HP is ready to rock.

Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson Firebird 2016 HP feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

Authentic Firebird sonic punch

Gibson's Firebird is a modern update of the original Gibson model, boasting all the vintage mojo - including a pair of mini humbuckers that give you the bright, bell-like jangle of single-coils, with the midrange complexity and punch you more associate with humbuckers. All, of course, with no noise!

Slim neck profile with wider Soloist neck width

The Gibson Firebird 2016 HP sports a fast, wide neck with a slim profile, perfect for modern players who push the speed limit. The wider Soloist neck width gives you more room for big bends and tapping. It's a great balance for players who love Les Paul tone but prefer a faster, thinner neck.
