Firebird

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019 NOS

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❌ Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, 1962

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, 1962

Here’s a rarity – a Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird in great condition and dating to 1962, its second year as a double cutaway.   This model is perhaps most visually associated with the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC.   The Gretsch G6131 Jet appeared in 1955, following the 1953 release of the Duo-Jet, perhaps as the Gretsch response to the Gibson Les Paul. At that point it featured a single cutaway body with an arched top – but instead of being solid, the body was chambered to reduce weight and produce a more ‘acoustic’ tone, towards Gretsch’s other arched-top models. The pattern of an archtop-style floating bridge rather than a fixed bridge like the Les Paul was still used.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird X Redolution, 2011

❌SOLD❌ 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.

❌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.

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.
