Green Firebird Sunburst
With its delicious appearance, the Green Firebird attracts attention. The original Gibson model was launched in 1963. The design has its origins in the United States of the fifties.
This guitar has a lovely good sound and nice appearance.
We have chosen a narrow and relatively thin neck. The profile is D-shape - so it fits well in the hand. Traditionally, Les Paul, SG and Explorer often have thick necks. But here you have an easy-to-play guitar with a thinner neck and low string action, but without fret buzz.
The body is in mahogany and very light. For a guitar in this price range, it is very resonant. There is a good acoustic sound in it. Connected to an amp, it sounds big and wonderful with its two mini humbuckers. You will have warm clear tones and quantities of dirt if you want to use some distortion. The mini humbuckers gives a slightly clearer sound than normal size humbuckers. A little more treble and string separation.
This is a guitar that stands out - just gorgeous! But as usual, it is better looking in reality than in the pictures.
