A Superbird!

OlofMa, 12.01.2018
My first thought was that it must be overprized, just another Epi with someones name on it bumping the price. After reading reviews and watching videos the GAS blew up like a storm.

For the money, where do you get a Firebird based on the 63? single-pickup model? Mahogany/walnut neck-through and Klunson banjo tuners?

I know the polymist gold colour could be a dealbreaker for many but trust me when i say it looks amazing in real life! It also is an original colour. (I thought it was something bonamassa picked as a showoff colour therefor i didn?t like it initially)

The guitar is light and feels more like my old SG i handeling than my old les paul. The neck is C profile and i like it alot. A dream to play regarding comfort (and coolness)

The quality of the guitar is good: Nice finish, solid built, no flaws on mine.

The Sound: There is no point really to describe it in text, listen on videos to get an opinion. But i can say its a blast to play and sings beautiful. Unplugged its loud and sounds nice. Great sustain plugged and unplugged.

This Epiphone is special build and very well made. Its i not just another epi with someones name on the head. If you?re looking for a firebird, get this while you can! This firebird will stay with me forever.

I rate it 5 stars because its a five star guitar, easy!

Fantastic and authentic guitar

adomaslt, 04.10.2017
Currently my favorite and an amazing guitar for what it is.

The the finish quality is I satisfactory without anything that stands out, it seems solid. Only minus on mine was a few spots on the neck where fingerboard is painted there are some dings of sorts. The fretboard at the higher frets seems aestetically not the best quality.

It's one pickup so it's not the most versatile instruments around, but still can manage a lot of sounds.

But man it sounds extremely good, the intonation is picture perfect along the whole fretboard, the neck is on the fatter side but it feels fast and smooth. The fretwork seems good. The tuners are somehwat bulky but they supposed to be and they do an ok job so far and seems to stay in tune ok. Action was great stock.

The sustain this guitar has i awesome, even unplugged. The pickup which is made like the old ones is probably worth the whole price of the guitar, considering the gibson firebird pickups doesn't do justice to the old ones. (that is if you are looking for that kind of sound).

Give it a tube amp and a bit of overdrive and this guitar sings! All in all it seems this guitar was made with care and consideration. Considering the price it's a steal in a broad daylight. Can be a mellow and easy going guitar, but definitely made to be an aggressive blues/acid/rock demon. Something straight from the 70 ties.

Gave features 4 stars because it's only one pickup, it's easy plug and go, but there are not that many features on it :)

Quality 4 stars because the fretboard aesthetically not the best quality.

But all the doesn't matter, because it plays excellent and sounds godish.
