2011 Firebird Studio

Recommended Posts

Looking at the limited runs for 2011, a Non-Reverse Firebird appeared! I've been looking for a non-reverse under $1500 or so. What do you Firebird guys think the "Studio" part means, i.e. what would be your guess as to features?

It's on the list circulating around the forum of the various models that Gibson is doing for 2011.

Hmm... no pics of 2011 FB studio.

I got old series FB studio(discontinued), it has PAF full size humbuckers instead mini-humbuckers and Grover Mini tuners instead of banjo type Steinbergers.The neck is `60 slim taper.No idea is this new 2011 model similar.

What it meant in the past is that it had PAF pickups and not mini-humbuckers. There were probably some other changes as well, but I don't know them, so I can't speculate.

 

Thanks for the info! I'd be down with that.

What if these aren't meant for the States? [crying] ??

The Bicentennial Bird on that page made me cry. I remember looking at it through glass back then.

 

I had a 66 NR three P90'd de-Maestro'd when I was a kid. Wish I had had the patience to get the pickups fixed, instead I traded it for another L6.

 

I need another Firebird in my life like I need a hole in the head but man, I need another Firebird!

The recent Firebird V represents great value for money

 

For such a characterful guitar.....

 

V

I would agree with you V. I have been thinking that I'm going to need one of those.
