2011 Gibson Firebird Studio Non-Reverse (MODEL DSFBS). 2011 GIBSON FIREBIRD STUDIO NON-REVERSE (MODEL DSFBS).
Nut width, black hardshell case included, limited edition run of 400 instruments, mfg. Previously owned by Alex Green of the band Attention Thieves. This guitar has rocked the stages at the Leeds and Reading Festivals and has commensurate dings and chips to bear testament to its use. I managed to find some photos of these events and have included them in the media gallery. I always thought that these guitars were a bit of a whacky shape, but in reality they balance well and sound great.This particular guitar features 3 coil tapped P-90 pickups, a five way selector and 3 individual volumes, phase shifting and one overall tone. Mahogany forms the core of the Firebird Studio Non-Reverse from Gibson USA. The guitars body is crafted from solid Grade-A mahogany, and dressed in an authentic high-gloss nitrocellulose finish in Vintage Sunburst. Its quarter-sawn, Grade-A mahogany neck is carved to an ultra thin.
800.850 profile, glued in, and topped with a Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 12 radius for smooth, choke-free bending. Beyond the PLEK-cut Corian nut, it carries a traditional hawks head six-in-line headstock with high-quality Mini Grover kidney button tuners, while down at the body end a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece-considerable upgrades from original components-help to ensure optimum resonance and sustain, while facilitating pinpoint intonation adjustments. With such a solid foundation beneath it, the piece de resistance of the Firebird Studio Non-Reverses tonal arsenal lies in its complement of three great new Gibson pickups and hotrodded electronics to make the most of their sonic potential. They dont feature split coil switching, as used on humbucking pickups.The switch on each of these single-coil Tap P-90 pickups accesses a genuine tap wired into the coil windings of each unit, grounding off part of its output to produce a brighter, more focused tone when the switch is pulled. The neck is slim, has a couple of minor dings that cant be felt whilst playing and has low action, the frets and rosewood fingerboard only show the very lightest of wear. Ive done my best to show the many superficial dings and dents that this guitar has. The Firebird logo has also been eroded away, possibly by sweat and abrasion. Remember this is one of just 400 of these sonically very adaptive and individually attractive items available. In phase reversal mode positions 2 and 4 sound snarly and have a tendency to unpredictable overtones, especially with overdriven and compressed sounds. In coil tap mode its very bright and articulate throughout. It does suffer from the single coil plight of hum.
Sonically its great pinched harmonics ping off this with ease! _gsrx_vers_811 GS 7.0.9 (811). The item "2011 Gibson Firebird Studio Non-Reverse (MODEL DSFBS)" is in sale since Wednesday, August 31, 2016. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments\Guitars & Basses\Electric Guitars".
