Gibson Custom Shop Firebird Acoustic


This item is not available for purchase online. Please call 801-466-8666 to order.
Featuring hand-engraved and –laid mother-of-pearl and abalone flames in the fingerboard and bridge and a phoenix rising from the ashes in the headstock, the Firebird 2019 is sure to turn heads, but it’s the sound that will keep everyone’s attention. Gibson constructs the classic square shoulder body with quilt maple sides and back and a sitka spruce top, the combination of which produces a tone that is bright and rich, as well as crisp and balanced.  They top it off with a hand-rubbed cherry stain on the sides and back and a hand-engraved flame pickguard, making this bird red hot from headstock to tailblock. 

About Gibson Montana:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.

“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legend.” So wrote Montana author Jim Harrison, perhaps about the master luthiers of Gibson Montana, which produces all of Gibson’s acoustic guitars.
