Gibson 2004 Firebird Studio Cherry Red Electric Guitar + Hard Case – SOLD

Categories: ,


Here for sale is a Gibson 2004 Firebird Studio in Cherry Red with the official Gibson Hard case in great condition. The guitar is fully set up and plays like a dream, sounds earth shattering, has great feel and nicely weighted. These Firebird studios look the best in our opinion with out the cumbersome centre block down the middle. The 90R and 498T pickups just scream and produce a really satisfying powerful sound. The guitar has been well looked after with the odd ding here or there nothing to worry about. These Firebirds are far superior in build quality to the recent Gibson studio Firebirds. Notable players include Dave Grohl who often pulls out a 2004 Firebird during Foo Fighters gigs and can see why, this guitar is simply killer!

The guitar can be posted out or collected from the shop by appointment only at:
Guitarsmiths, 2nd Floor Above Cotters Shoes, 48 Westgate Street, Gloucester GL1 2NF
Call/ Text 0044 (0)7900123408 to arrange a viewing/ play the instrument. If collecting in person cash is preferred.

The Gibson Firebird Studio was introduced in 2004 and features the classic reverse body shape but with a conventional set neck (not-neck through)  and full-sized humbucking pickups. Gibson’s highly collectibel first-generation 1963 Firebird guitars (designed by Ray Dietrich) had the treble bout longer than the bass bout (the so-called revese body), neck-thru-body construction and mini-humbucking pickups. The Firebird Studio model maintains this vintage vibe with the reverse-body design, while its conventional set neck makee an affordable reverse-body Firebird. The full-size humbuckers are Gibson 496R and 500T units. It has a slim-taper neck and is available in Ebony, Cherry and Classic White finishes, with a choice of chrome- or gold-plated hardware.
