A sleek semi-hollow icon ready to unleash scorching humbucker tones.

Combining the head-turning looks of an iconic guitar design with Gibson's renowned build quality and premium tonewoods, the Custom Firebird from the brand's esteemed Custom Shop makes a bold statement on stage and in the studio. This recreation of the classic Firebird model delivers the searing rock tones you crave, along with the nuanced responsiveness and playing feel that have made Gibson a legend among guitarists for over 100 years.

Iconic Design Meets Uncompromising Craftsmanship

From its distinctive double-cutaway mahogany body to the sleek, symmetrical neck profile, every aspect of the Custom Firebird has been dialed in by the luthiers at Gibson's acclaimed Custom Shop. The guitar's traditional build incorporates premium solid tonewoods like mahogany for the body and a quarter-sawn maple neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard. You'll experience the characteristic warmth and depth of a classic Gibson while enjoying the playing comfort of a hand-rolled fingerboard. A nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only looks stunning but allows the woods to "breathe" and age gracefully.

Dual Humbuckers Unleash Fiery Rock Tones

To capture the iconic rock sounds you crave, the Custom Firebird comes loaded with a pair of powerful Gibson humbucking pickups. The 490R in the neck position yields thick, singing leads, while the scorching 498T bridge pickup delivers the punch and grit to cut through any mix. With these versatile pickups under your fingers, you'll effortlessly channel vintage PAF tones, modern high-gain bite or anything in between. A 3-way selector switch and dual Tone and Volume controls allow you to shape your voice with surgical precision.

Premium Appointments Enhance Playability

No corners were cut in the design of this Firebird—it was built to play as exceptionally as it looks. The rounded '60s neck profile feels instantly comfortable, while the 24.75" scale length offers a familiar playing surface for most guitarists. The 22-fret rosewood fingerboard provides enough real estate for melodic leads while maintaining a smooth, effortless bend radius. And with its iconic Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, you can expect excellent tuning stability and resonance from string to string.
