    Product Description

    The Skunk Baxter Firebird by Gibson USA is built in the tradition of the original reverse-body Firebird, with its distinctive looks and multi-piece neck-through-body construction for superior strength and sustain. A radically new set of Firebird Mini-humbuckers retain the sweet, dynamic tone similar to that of Gibson’s original ’57 humbuckers. Route three of these powerful pickups through independent on/off and full/split-coil switching for an insane number of variations and combinations, and this is the most sonically versatile Firebird yet!

    The high-quality Tune-o-matic bridge, Lyre vibrato tailpiece, and Steinberger gearless tuners deliver consistent performance on stage or in the studio—and when it comes to looks, the high-gloss Copper Metallic finish, black plastics, white fingerboard binding, and pearloid block inlays make the Skunk Baxter Firebird a visual treat. Don’t miss out: experience this fabulous Firebird today at your authorized Gibson USA dealer.

    • Nine-ply mahogany and walnut through-neck construction

    With one of the most jaw-dropping resumes in music, Skunk Baxter has come to know a thing or two about tone. After playing bass in Jimi Hendrix’s pre-Experience band, Baxter became a founding member of Steely Dan, then joined hit-makers the Doobie Brothers in 1974. As a studio musician for over 50 years, he worked extensively with Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, Donna Summer, Ringo Starr, Dolly Parton and many others. His go-to guitar? A Gibson Firebird, naturally—and with that kind of background, you just know that his Firebird is going to be something special.
