Question New Gibson Firebird! What's your opinion?

It has Distortion!!!!!!!


From Henrys words.....

......Henry Juszkiewicz, that will change music forever. This is more than a press conference. More than an event. This is an uprising!.....

Is this thing a hoax? I am going to wait for official word on this and the announcement before commenting.

Well then it must be true! Italian news is among the best news in the world.

I want to at least see a Gibson headstock on that thing.

Re: New Gibson Firebird! What's your opinion?

So that's it, then? A limited-run, programmable, robot-equipped, EQ-equipped guitar with a DSP and wireless techonolgy so it can talk to a wireless selector "pedal"...all with an MSRP of $5500.

OK....I think that's why they call it "dope''...better pass that doobie next time!

Re: New Gibson Firebird! What's your opinion?

The definitions of the words 'revolutionary' and 'uprising' seem to have changed since I was a kid.

I'm embarrassed for Gibson today. Seriously.

Re: New Gibson Firebird! What's your opinion?



So when it gets to the stores, it's going to have a price tag of around 3 grand!!!

But something doesn't add up. What's with all the stuff about china? Surely this thing isn't made in China? A $3000 "digital" guitar that's made in China?

Once again

Here's the article:

fr.audiofanzine.com/guitare-de-forme-flying-v-explor/gibson/firebird-x/news/a.play,n.13549.html - Translator

Rough translation...

Quote:
Gibson donne ce matin une conférence de presse au Hard-Rock Café de New York, un endroit spécial pour dévoiler sa “Revolution”, une guitare Firebird X bluetooth.

Fini le numérique dans les guitares Gibson, comme l’annonçait son PDG il y a quelques jours ? Pas si sûr ! La prochaine guitare Gibson Firebird X, qui sera disponible à partir du 12 novembre à seulement 1800 exemplaires, serait bourrée d’électronique et intégrera notamment un microprocesseur et un système bluetooth.



Plus d’infos très vite, on sait déjà, en plus de la date de sortie, que son prix est annoncé à $5500.

Quote:

Digital in guitars Gibson, as announced its CEO a few days ago finished? There is no safe! Next guitar Gibson Firebird X, which will be available from November 12 to only 1800 copies would be packed with electronics and integrate such a microprocessor and a bluetooth system.



More info soon known already, in addition to the date of exit, its price was announced at $5500.

We know what the inlay on the headstock is going to look like. Thanks for a sneak peak at the image, KMK!
