    Product Description

    It's 1965.Man hasn’t landed on the moon yet, ‘The Sound of Music’ tops the movie box office, the Rolling Stones' ‘Satisfaction’—powered by the legendary sound of the Gibson Fuzz-Tone—hits number one, and musicians walking past music stores see a guitar that was born to turn heads: the Firebird Lyre Tail Vibrola. Its distinctive shape, sleek lines, eye-catching looks, and commanding tone inspired instant gear lust.

    But unless you were around in 1965 and bought one, or found someone who didn’t know the guitar's value, you lost the chance to own this exquisite guitar…until now. The 2016 Limited Edition Firebird Lyre Tail Vibrola isn't just a guitar, it's a painstakingly researched re-boot of a classic. The only way to find a more authentic version is to build a time machine that takes you back more than 40 years ago to a store that has a new one in stock.

    Body Language
    This handmade-in-the-USA beauty has a mahogany body with no weight relief, coupled with a mahogany/walnut neck. The six inline Grover tuners are faithful to the original tuners, and the design has stood the test of time to look as fresh now as it did all those years ago.

    Tale of the Tail
    The most distinctive element is the vibrola Lyre tail and cover. When it's time to whammy, the vibrola gets the job done in a way no other vibrato tailpiece can duplicate. The feel, the subtly increasing resistance as you push, and the accurate return to pitch make it a joy to play.

    The Complete Package
    The Firebird Lyre Tail Vibrola 2016 Limited Proprietary has all the other features that remain true to the original: black top hat knobs with inserts, the original Firebird neck shape and reverse headstock, vintage strap buttons, and the stripped, no-frills look of no body binding.

    Available for only a limited time, this species of Firebird brings the past into the present with style. Play it, and you’ll discover what all the excitement was about back in 1965.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I love this guitar ! I had tuning issues with 2 SG's in a row so I got this because it has a 3 degree less angle on the head stock (and it looks way cooler). Thank you AMS for taking care of me on the SG's issues (Gibson's fault not AMS's). This is just a fantastic guitar ,fit and finish good, set up was dead on and it plays/sounds out of this world, I am playing Johnny Winters slide style on this baby and it sounds like I know what I'm doing !!! Thanks again AMS, this is my 7th guitar from you guys and you have a loyal customer for life ! :)

    glad I pulled the trigger!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Firstly, the case that this guitar arrived in was gorgeous and everyone has mentioned how nice the case looks. This guitar has killer tone and its mini humbuckers/solid mahogany body/rosewood fretboard allows this guitar to record so well and stand out in any mix. I play it through an Eventide Eclipse V4 in the rack and the results are outstanding. When it arrived it did need a set-up job and the neck needed to be adjusted, but once I took care of that, man, it really puts the FIRE in Firebird. I personally love the lyre tail vibrato on this guitar to add that "shimmer" to the end of the notes and phrases. I don't use it like I would a Floyd Rose, though, but for that perfect shimmer vibrato, the lyre tail is great. My friends cannot get over how nice this guitar is, and how reasonably priced it was. For the money, this guitar truly amazes. Would buy again in a heartbeart!

    Very impressed with this Firebird. Beautiful finish and sounds great. Love the tremolo system on this lyre. I really like it comes with a case. It's too nice for just a gig bag. BUY THIS ONE!!

    Better than I could have imagined
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've had a few Gibson Firebirds in my lifetime, but none with the Lyre tremelo system. This is the model I've always wanted, and was tickled to death when Gibson made it available for a limited time. The finish was impeccable and absolutely gorgeous. The materials, construction and quality more than exceeded my expectations. The only thing that I HATED about previous Firebirds, were the banjo tuners. They were so heavy and awkward, that if you let go of the neck, it went into a nosedive to the floor. This annoyance has been eliminated with mini Grovers. The only other difference I can see between this and the originals is it has a perfectly flat headstock, rather than the sculptured one of their predecessors . Small trade off for the neck not being top heavy. The clean tone of this Gibson is to die for. And it handles distortion very well. All in all, this one is a keeper. So glad I finally got it. Thank you Gibson.
