    The 2017 Gibsons are listed on GC and MF. Some good stuff...

    But they may want to reconsider showcasing their new Firebird Zero with a crack in the finish :laugh2:

    Maybe it's a "feature"? :dunno::doh:

    I try to have an open mind, but...that is one ugly guitar.

    On one hand that's really is kind of awesome.

    on the other hand the forearm contour is a total rip-off of the PRS singlecut.

    I'd like that a lot more without the contours and maple neck. But it's still pretty damn neat and that price rocks.


    edit: no compromise for the new S Series Made-in-USA guitars.

    they even call it 'S Series' like PRS does. :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

    Wow Gibson just climbed right up Pauls bung-hole and grabbed a chair.


    edit2: the wine red looks glossy and the ebony looks like a faded with open pores. ...but same listed price. ??

    $499. A bargain! (until it's played)

    :wow::facepalm:I actually like the FB0. If it was a reverse bird with a chunky neck I'd be all over like a fat kid on cake.

    What is it with Gibson and the firebird? I havent seen a non custom shop bird with a chunky neck in years and I think that one was just an anomaly that should have come home with me.

    I like their regular bird offering too, but alas, 60's slim taper.

    I might buy a zero out of morbid curiosity.

    cool to see they brought back the Firebird Studio, if only it had the proper "reverse" headstock
