Amazing thick rich resonant Tone
What is your opinion of this product?
If you like thicker riche tone than say a strat or even a les Paul that really gives a unique sound. Crazy low set ups don’t work well because with slightly higher action you get a more rich rich resonance than any other guitar I’ve played. The fit and finish other than a micro blemish in the finish was stupendous. It takes a more experience person to build one of these guitars and I think that gets you more quality than most Gibson’s. If you want to separate yourself from the crowd and have amazing tone without even an amp or a bunch of distortion this is the guitar for you. This is a mans man guitar and you will get searing leads out of this thing if you have the chops. Buy it today you won’t regret it — I love this guitar and it’s up there with my customs. You will love the balance and the tuners as well — awesome. Thanks AMS for making available. I’d do it again without a thought.

SWEET *with caveat*
What is your opinion of this product?
I own 5 Firebirds, and had 7 altogether. Love 'em. Some had 'issues' but I kept going back for more. Purchased one last year that had 'issues' but worked on it and it's sweet. This 'Elite' Firebird, is double the price of last year's, I almost balked but am glad I pulled the trigger. At first glance it was stunningly beautiful but upon closer inspection, I noticed the usually issues with Firebird finishes; ripples, orange peel, etc. I am a bit of a perfectionist when spending this much cash so the vast majority of players may have to look hard to find what I see in workmanship. It is harder to build and finish Firebirds, and every single one of mine has noticeable finish blems, so it seems normal in Firebirds. Anyway, the sound is just incredible. The balance seems a bit better with this model compared to previous years. It just sits right where it should. I absolutely love this, and am very pleased overall. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Case & extra stuff thrown in as well. Love it.
