I got this used at a local store. I think it is a 2006 model.It's a beautiful guitar and one that I have always wanted.I never thought I could afford one but this was only $799 because it has a headstock repair.

Love the Ebony fretboard! The inlays look like real mother of pearl.

Does anyone know the Gibson name for this color? Is it "Red Metallic?

Thanks!I think Cardinal Red is more like Fender "Fiesta Red".The Firebird on the right is Cardinal Red. Mine is closer to a "Candy Apple Red".

If your instrument is from the 2006 time-frame, the finish options for the Firebird VII were "Cherry" and "Red Metallic"
