Gibson Firebird Acoustic
Danger BirdAttention, acoustic adventurers of the Wildwoodiverse! We are delighted to present another offering from Gibson Montana's Mastershop series: the Firebird. Not to be confused with its electric cousin, this particular 'bird is an acoustic tone machine. Its Sitka spruce top is bright, responsive, punchy, and balanced. But, the real magic comes from its quilted maple back and sides. Quilted maple is less dense than typical varieties, and it sounds warmer as a result. So, you get all the transparency, clarity, chime, and presence of maple, but with a rounder overall timbre. Together, these two supercharged tonewoods make quite an intoxicating sonic cocktail!
Stellar sounds aside, the Firebird's looks will also set your heart ablaze. The pickguard has a sweet custom Flame design on it, and the fingerboard has custom abalone flame inlays. But, the coolest part is the headstock inlay, which depicts a bird rising from flames.
The Gibson Firebird is sure to help you soar like a Phoenix on all of your fretboard travels. We're proud to showcase such an inspiring instrument for our exceptional customers, and we invite you to take it for a spin and enjoy its fiery sounds. Once you do, we're confident you won't be able to put it down.
