UTILIZATION

The handle is a little "surprise" at the beginning it seems "hard" for me as a "fenderiste" at the base and Telecaster more.
The fact is that it is mostly extremely accurate.
To ergonomics should not weigh 40 pounds and be 1.50m. This is a tough guitar.
Recommend a good wide strap, the size of the head plus the banjo tuners, it's weight and tends to nosedive.
For access to acute nothing wrong is nickel.
The sound is powerful, although versatile, full of harmonics, a truly comprehensive guitar still amazes me and I still have not discovered all the possibilities.

SOUNDS

I play a little of everything and it fits. But it is ideal for solos. Because of his neck through the sustain is paradise.
On any setting even with saturated sick it remains accurate.
She plays an amp "house" type Fender class A 20 watt lamps, with super natural crunch. This receiver is equipped with huge transformer, allowing super late next game fishing that sending the strings.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this Gibson since 2010.
I had a USA hamer eclipse which was equipped with mini humbucker like Gibson, but this was the ducan Seymour (super guitar passage and not super expensive and more).
But the Firebird that was the direct lightning strike!
When I bought it in 2010 it was new. Sold as a occas but the frets were immaculate and microphones not even addressed. A 1200 euros for me it was a great deal.
If I had the choice again ... eyes closed.

Gibson [Guitar of the Week #24] Firebird V Flame Maple Wings
Made in USA by Gibson, is a limited edition (guitar of the week 2007) of 400 copies. Micro mini-humbuckers.
Channel says "driver, meaning it runs the length of the bridge head, head included. Designing rare.

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, tend to curl if you want a low action, but that does not include actually. Somewhat specific to Firebird.
Although late 50s, the shape is pretty fun, especially ergonomic enough. You can press the elbow on the upper body and great for "big, because it has a large amplitude.
Access to acute perfect.


SOUNDS

Any type, mini humbuckers Donnet puiosque the possibility of its light or fat.
I play a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years.
I'm pretty adept half box, but now I love the sound, ergonomics, look.
