Epiphone's Inspired by Gibson Firebird rocks a reverse body and headstock design as originally introduced in 1963 and was Gibson's first neck-through-body design. The traditional 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck-through-body provides rich, warm tonality and incredible sustain. A SlimTaper neck with a bound, Indian laurel fingerboard and acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays offers fast and effortless playability. The newly refreshed Firebird is outfitted with a set of ProBucker FB720 pickups to recapture the scorching output and searing tones of the original voice for which the Firebird is known, and Grover 18:1 ratio mini tuners. Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Original models feature a rolled neck for a comfortable feel, GraphTech NuBone nut, era-appropriate wiring, and CTS pots.
