Epiphone Firebird Studio
Made in China
Mahogany body
Set mahogany neck
22 frets
Alnico Classic humbuckers
Chrome hardware
24-3/4" scale
1.68" nut width
Dot inlays
Stopbar tailpiece

"Banjo"-style tuners
1/4" output jack


Playability is very nice. I was concerned about the sharper shoulder on the neck - it was a touch uncomfortable. One problem with this guitar is balance - standing up, the neck dives a lot, and it is quite annoying to have to be supporting the weight of the neck with the left hand while also trying to play notes. The guitar is very big, also, so it can get dinged up easily if one isn't careful. I think the tuners are interesting - not cool enough that I'd want to swap other tuners out to these style tuners, but refreshing and different. One other major annoyance is that most guitar cables are not angled, and the output jack is very close to the controls. With a straight cable, the knobs are now hard to turn.


The sounds on this are fantastic. Thick, warm, clear, muddy, bright, crisp - this can do anything. The tone rolloff sound is one of the best I've ever heard - it nails Queens of the Stone Age type tones. The Slash/Cream "woman" tone is perfection on this. It's like taking the neck pickup from a Les Paul, and the bridge pickup from an SG, and blending it together. Blues, classic rock, metal - this is great for all of those genres.


This is a good guitar overall, but it sounds great. There are major annoyances, such as balance, size, neck shoulder, knob/jack placement, but then again, it plays well, looks good, and sounds wonderful. If those annoyances are not a big deal to you, this guitar will keep you happy for a long time. The guitar gets a 7 overall from me.

christian.cuisinier-92's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What handle (s)!"

Epiphone Firebird Studio
China or in the corner. Chevlat tune-o-matic / Epi. Handle extra end! 22 frets; 2 microphones Humb. capors ss; 2 vols. ; 2 tones; 3 pos selector. Looking good, at that time, the type of finish should be "worn brown", the body is in three (3) parts of mahogany, beautiful; the mahogany neck (they say, but it is difficult to check the color seen something) stuck.


Very good handle: fine and excellent acute attacks! Firebird: a guitar as it is to take ergonomics "special" sitting and standing ... Sounds bad: microphones "cheaps" (otherwise, why buy a Gibson, etc ...)


Playing the blues / jazz, if the pickups had been better, I would have kept! (I bitterly regret selling:.!. Simply change mic and I'm for Wilkinson humbuckers covers ou non, and why not mini humbuckers - the Humb € 35, € 60 mini - great in minis) I plays Bugera VH55 2 body.


Now it should cost around 400 potatoes: it's cheap, but it is unique! Sold 15 + j Later I just said above.

TheJeff666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" excellent surprise"

Epiphone Firebird Studio
Chinese manufacturing, tune o matic bridge, mahogany set neck with rosewood fingerboard mechanical steinberger, mahogany body, 2 humbuckers, 2 volume, 2 tone, 3 position switch, the classic ...

Overall a very simple bill, but very well done, good violin, good binding, very beautiful object ...

For the price, nothing surprising, but the hardware is very average and very quickly oxidized (easel, finishing mechanical ...). I have not yet opened the beast (it will be soon ....) but the electronics must be the lowest rate ...

9/10 for value for money.


very nice surprise on the handle ... this is not a log, relatively flat radius, it is not an ibanez neck either ... I'm more used to the handles vintage fender (buche with large radius), but here is my handle fell directly under the fingers, sweet, everything goes easy, I love it!

This is a firebird, therefore tend to nosedive into play standing, this is normal. on the other hand, it is less onerous than a "true" (or orville gibson vintage ...), including the head, and then, with a good padded leather strap no problem for me. the game is very natural sitting. accessibility to acute nickel.

The great surprise of this guitar is its sound was empty, not trendy, beautiful, shiny, full bodied, well balanced, great projection. all my guitars, it's one that sounds the best vacuum ... superb!


Ben sounds like this guitar course, well, amplified, even with microphones basic, well it does. I play everything (tendency to rock blues still ...), a blackstar amp, with a gaggle of pedals ... the two humbuckers are the job well and have a relatively comfortable level of output. Clearly, in crunch in distortion, nothing to say it does it very well spent and all techniques. a slight lack of personality probably the mics, but frankly for the price, it's happiness ... The sound is brighter and slamming a LP but remains in the registry "gibson" ... firebird mind is less dull than LP.


I bought this firebird as a stopgap while waiting to buy me a real later ... well it is not at all a stopgap, it's just a very very good guitar ... it has been 25 years since I played, so I tried a bunch of skyscrapers, including firebird (and orville gibson). This little Epiphone is actually part of the family firebird with his personality to it, I love!

So she will be entitled to a change in micro electronics and hardware (probably with a Bigsby ...), because it's worth it ...

I will publish my opinion once upgraded the guitar ...

Excellent value for money.

berdeforcal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a pleasant surprise"

Epiphone Firebird Studio
China, tune o matic bridge, set neck rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, 2 humbucker alnico 5 pickups epiphone, 2 volumes, 2 tones, 1 3-position selector


The handle: handle also very cozy on the gibson firebird studio of a friend. This is not a beam, a problem of many Gibson. This is not the highway of my ESP is good.

ERGONOMICS: This is the problem of firebird. I exchanged against a Custom77 cs3 because the guitarist (very nice, with Audiofanzine exchange) did not did not. For me it's perfect, is an extension of my body. The spécificitées for those who want to buy a firebird are:
Compared to a TV or an LP, the left hand should go further, if you position yourself as a different scratch and you are an E minor, your fingers will meet and do sue the FA instead of if and mi. Then the right hand, when you scratch the strings, you may fall on the bridge tune o matic and not on space habtituel. Me when I took over, I saw more of the look when it was an extension of my body. Question balance, I only play on a stool and I like my problem with lp dééquilibre to the lower body as soon as I let go of the handle there with the firebird is well balanced as my ESP Mirage. So if you like short sleeves and you tend to have the right hand flush to the bridge, you risuqez not to love! Well, I try to explain myself as best when I see the reviews is to make me a review
Weight: it is lightweight compared to a LP and slightly heavier than a scratch alder.
Access to acute: good, however, this guitar is destined to the rhythm in my opinion because the sound is very bright compared to an lp with the same micro neck. As for the solos, I prefer my lp studio 1991 ebony fingerboard and 24 frets my ESP mirage. Mics, and if you have taste then find relatively rotten (this is normal considering the price of the guitar) and I advise you to upgrade the gibson or seymour, I'll set up a gibson 490R and a seymour sh4 . I often read that the level of Micor is proportional to the level of guitarist, and I am shocked because I regularly meet super good playing with stews and are very happy (as long as there is writing on the Gibson or other sleeve), because when you upgrade a scratch average it often does as much as a high-end is not something that that is an exception, the stews over € 800 is also rather the norm, but the most part of guys are no leaves, no big deal in itself. It's like when you put a discount whiskey in a bottle of chivas chivas and that you put in the bottle of crap, experience and let people help themselves. The scratch is the same, so if you have taste, even if you are a beginner, you will need to change the pickups if you do not want that power, that's fine. If you have multiple digital effects you'll find the perfect microphone, if you as the electro harmonix or mxr, you weep, so conclusion: very good scratch if you upgrade the pickups
Mechanics is the surprise, you will not need to change! And a scraper that price is exceptional!


Yes it suits my style of music but I have several guitars, as it does not paris Dakkar with bmw 738, and pulls hard with a pickup in town! The scratch is the same!
The sounds are from a Les Paul and a TV in my opinion but it is subjective!
I play with a Blackstar HT5 3 body (10 hp are rotten, I intend to buy the 2X12 with celestion vintage 30), a cathedral elctro harmonix deluxe memory + boy + metal muff, like I said everything will be better when I changed the pickups


I've had two days but I've played 4 to 5 hours
I traded because I liked the look and I'm not disappointed
For the price range nothing to repprocher, the violin is beautiful, it's a good surprise, the comments are mechanical properties.
I do not like the pickups but you can not blame him, I knew before you have on hand.
Report of the super exchange, I do it again this choice and I think in the future acquire an epiphone firebird mini humbucker that j'upgraderai with seymour
