I would offer to swap with your Silver Sky, but I just can't be having a cheap PRS with a scarf joint.

That guitar is the metaphor for everything that was Henry Juszkiewicz.

How about nothing you've asked for?

Vintage 1964 Firebird III, in red, not hard tail, modified for ThroBak MXV101+'s.

Or if you can wait a couple of months...

100% original bicentennial Firebird, hard tail, in black.

That's fucking hideous, sometimes time mellows design shock (like the flame BMW 5 series) but that? Yeah, nah.


Agreed. And what the feck is going on with the Buck Rogers volume/tone/selector knob?


It's like an amateur electronics enthusiast ate a book of Guitar projects and vomited all over it.

I vote yes, every time I have heard one it has sounded sublime. Kevin Borich playing slide on one at Mountain Rock was a revelation!

This might be a forum members guitar. I wonder why Gibson thought that's what a '64 Sunburst looked like that at the sides. Very strange. Top looks rad.

The Firebird I bought from Grant had the most sublime neck pickup tone. The guitars themselves are a bit unwieldy for me but that one really did sound wonderful.

Saw a cheapish, newish SG the other day which appeared to have Firebird pickups. Can't be sure as I believe the internals are different to regular Gibson mini humbuckers. Be cool if it did though.
