The Firebird V 2016 HP re-defines one of Gibson's most revolutionary electric guitars for a new generation of demanding players. It keeps its legendary neck-through-body construction, while adding an entire set of exclusive premium and high performance features. A new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup allows unprecedented access to the high notes which, combined with a SlimTaper neck profile and new soloist neck width, effectively makes it the fastest-playing Firebird ever made. Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A pair of mini-humbuckers deliver classic Firebird tones, while genuine mother-of-pearl inlays add the final touch of class to a Firebird that flies higher than ever.
Gibson USA's wider soloist dimensions and fast-access heel make this the fastest bird you've ever played. Gibson's titanium zero-fret nut drops action as low as you'll dare to go, and it's all perfected by a precise Plek treatment and hand-finished final setup.
The archetypal neck-through-body construction with a nine-ply neck and body core and mahogany wings presents the reverse-body Firebird's legendary depth and sustain. A pair of Firebird Mini-Humbucker pickups present an outstanding blend of power and clarity, while a titanium nut and titanium bridge saddles allow it all ring like never before.
A thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish, G-Force tuners, genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, improved knobs and plastics, and an exclusive labor-intensive hand-applied process for a smooth high-gloss nitrocellulose finish all add up to superior quality for optimum looks, feel and tone.
