Gibson Description: Gibson’s original “Reverse-Bodied” Firebird was ahead of its time when it first arrived in the early ’60s, but it really came into its own as a rock classic of the 1970s. The Firebird Studio ’70s Tribute offers all the quality and performance that has made the Studio range so popular with hard-gigging guitarists since its introduction in 1983, with crucial updates that ally it to many legendary Gibson guitars of the 1970s. Grab hold of the unique thin-to-thick neck carve of the Firebird Studio ’70s Tribute—with a profile that starts out slim at the lower frets and becomes increasingly chunky as you slide toward the joint—and you’re rocketed straight back to an age of fierce, fast soloing. the neck is made from maple and carved to a profile unique to the era, which measures .800” deep at the 1st fret and increases to .963” at the 12th, with a volute behind the nut to both strengthen the headstock joint and enhance neck resonance.
In the tone department, it carries a pair of Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbuckers, new pickups that offer vintage-edged tones with great contemporary versatility, and a visual nod toward the original Firebird guitars. These units improve upon the the former Mini Humbuckers seen in the Les Paul Deluxe in the ’70s, and the different Firebird Mini Humbuckers of the early ’60s, in an efficient design that uses dual steel blades and an Alnico magnet for a vintage voice that still retains plenty of chime. This combo yields everything from singing bluesy neck tones to crunchy and wailing leads, and are dressed in solid chrome covers. They are routed through the traditional four-knob and three-way switch wiring set up, and partnered with a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for optimum sustain and precise intonation. A set of vintage-style TonePros™ tuners with chrome keys graces the reversed six-in-line headstock.
To top it off, the Firebird Studio ’70s Tribute looks great in Cherry with grain-textured satin nitrocellulose lacquer.
