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

It's not the only ugly one....

Does this mean another year without a honest to gosh Junior?
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.

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