    Awesome guitar at a good price
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is my first Gibson guitar. I've played bass and guitar for 20 years and I routinely play bass at a 700 person venue. I ordered this honestly because it said Gibson on the headstock and it was something I could afford. The finish on mine is great, there were no flaws. There was a little bit of adhesive gunk on the neck that came right off with my fingernail. The tuners are unbranded but they are sealed and work well. The neck on mine is quartersawn. The frets where done well. The nut was cut well but the material looks like cheap plastic. I'll replace this eventually. The bridge on mine does tilt forwards a little. I have read complaints about this several places online. My guitar still has a nice low action even with the tilted bridge but be aware this is something that seems to be an issue with these guitars.

    Better than expected at the price!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Lightweight yet heavy sound machine - good tone options & impressive sustain, with pretty good finish in this price range; set-up straight out the box was excellent. This is one versatile & usable guitar where you don't pay over-the-top pricing for the venerable Gibson logo. I love playing it; the balance is good, so even my 7yr old can handle it, & of course is wowed by the funky shape! No regrets. Fast shipping, bag included - what's not to like sub-$500???

    Not so great, move on
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar is a mixed bag. Horrible bridge that tilts and won't allow you to lower the action enough. Frets are rough and not dressed at all. I have $100 chinese guitars with nicer frets. The neck is really nice, but mixed with everything else not so great. The nut is awful and won't allow the guitar to stay in tune. I waited too long, otherwise I would return this guitar. Sound is ok, tuners are ok, finish is ok, electronics are from Korea.

    You Get What You Pay For Plus a Gig Bag!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I picked up one of these as a scratch and dent and my thoughts are mixed. I love the price that AMS had it for and the condition was actually pretty good. The guitar is small. This feels like an Epiphone Les Paul Special II weight wise and size wise. The finish is pretty good for the price but where it shines is the Dual Slug pickups. I did a comparison last night between the Firebird Zero, a 2017 Gibson M2, 2015 Gibson LP Studio, 2016 Gibson SG Faded, 2014 Gibson SGM, 2004 Fender Showmaster HH and a 2014 Fender Jazzmaster HH through a Laney Cub with a 2x12 Laney Cab and sound wise, the Firebird Zero held it's own for clarity and tone. It was better than the Jazzmaster, way better than the M2 and even better than the SGM however it was not as good as the LP Studio or the 2016 SG Faded. The guitar is so light, it almost feels like a toy. My back appreciates it but the weight/size definitely impact the tone and sustain. Not perfect but well worth the price.

    The Gamble Paid off!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Certainly was a bit skeptic...A USA made Gibson for an Epiphone price, but I must say "WOW!!" Here's the short and dirty: **Neck - Fast/easy to play. Easy access up the neck. Needed no adjustments out of the box *Tuners/keys - First day i had to keep adjusting the tuning but once the guitar got acclimated it stays in tune fine. **Weight - This has got to be the lightest Gibson I own (I have 17 other Gibsons including solids and hollow bodies and this baby is light) **Pick-ups/tone - Also impressive. Nice fat chunky sound when you want. A little natural dirt, but that's ok by me. **Color/finish - Reminds me of an old color Ford had on their late 60's Mustangs. Nice contrast between the light neck and blue. No flaws in the finish. **Shipping - FAST 2 days. **Over-all I am VERY pleased with the purchase and used it out on a gig the day after it came.

    Finally!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Gibson got it right, finally. I've played a bunch of Gibson's, Fenders, and imports. Hand's down, best out of the box fixed bridge electric guitar experience I've ever had. It's Gibson through and through, but with 2017 precision, it's an utterly precise guitar. It arrived with really high action for shipping purposes. No sticky plastic to peal off anywhere on the guitar, and this was unopened, fresh from the factory, just a nice Gibson string guard with a rubber pad. The neck needed a slight adjustment for my tastes and then I lowered the bridge to 4/64" and 3/64", wow. Pure tone, long sustain, amazing string separation, pick sensitivity, a nice airy chime, and the neck is not wobbly at all. Loud and clear all the way up and down an amazing, fast neck. I want a reverse body with a Khaler or a Floyd Rose too, same color. Every other Gibson I've ever played pales in comparison to this one. Thank you Gibson! Thank *you* American Musical!

    Very Pleased
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I like this Pelham Blue Firebird Zero a lot, sounds and plays great. Very impressed with the pickups and won't be changing them. A little hotter than the 61 Zebras in my 2015 SG Special but still sound great clean. Two knits: 1) its not real easy to replace a string because you have to go around the bridge pickup. 2) Its going out of tune more than I expected with the straight shot to the tuners. I'm going to try lubing the nut and if that doesn't work go to a roller nut and maybe locking tuners. I've been playing 34 years and have owned lots of nice guitars and this sounds as good as any of them.

    Gibson finally delivers with this very cool Firebird at an unbelievable price!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Honestly, I bought this because it was 499.00 NEW and it's a GIBSON! I am 54 yrs old, Played for 43 yrs and own over 60 electrics. The last time I remember seeing a Gibson new for under 500.00 was when I was 10 yrs old(1972) and you could get a one pickup melody maker for 500.00. This baby has 2 pickups and man do they sound sweet! They are new? at least Gibson claims, whatever, they sound good! Also, this is incredibly LIGHT WEIGHT which I normally LOVE my heavy les pauls and weight does not bother me but if you want a light guitar, this is it! Despite the weight, the wrap around bridge (One of the other reasons I bought this) is great and I believe really adds to sustain! Plus, it's light because the wood is Poplar (A naturally light wood) but still is a great tone wood and the guitar is SOLID so you get great resonance! The topper is the neck is straight with NO buzz or dead spots OR sharp edges, Cannot say that about a lot of higher end Gibson's. Thanks AMS!
