❌SOLD❌  Fano PX6 Alt de Facto Sunburst, 2010

Here, we’re looking at a Fano PX6 Alt de Facto model with three key options – Lollar Firebird pickups instead of P90s and a set, Mahogany neck rather than a bolt-on Maple neck. This model hews close to the ‘Non Reverse’ aesthetic, with a bound Rosewood fingerboard and six-on-one-side tuning machines. The body is a slab of Mahogany with lightly rounded edges.

Gibson Firebird X Redolution, 2011

Gibson Firebird X Redolution, 2011

The Gibson Firebird X was one of Gibson’s efforts to fully modernize the electric guitar. It starts with the basic ‘reverse’ offset chambered body built of Ash, and a set Maple neck with Maple fingerboard. The headstock is a more traditional Gibson layout rather than the ‘Fender-esque’ Firebird design. There are three new Firebird FBX mini-humbucker pickups, a tune-o-matic bridge with stop tailpiece, but from there everything is different.

Presold! Gibson Clapton Firebird I 1964 Model Sunburst, 2019

Presold! Gibson Clapton Firebird I 1964 Model Sunburst, 2019

This fantastic instrument is pre-sold, but we wanted to share it. It’s a brand new Gibson Clapton Firebird, number 100 of just 100 built to re-create Clapton’s 1964 Firebird I as used in Cream. Gibson introduced the Firebird in 1963, initially using neck-through construction – while the neck section is built of several sections of Mahogany separated by Walnut for stability, it extends the full length of the guitar.

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird V Through-Neck Electric Red, 1981

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird V Through-Neck Electric Red, 1981

This example is one of few Gibson Firebird V ‘s built during 1981. Its serial number points to production on February 23rd, 1981 at the Kalamazoo plant, and it features an unusual Red finish and Gold plated hardware. It has been refretted – necessary because it’s also been played as intended – but otherwise is in original condition. The refret was well done, and uses fairly large wire.
