At a recent conference in New York City, Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz met privately with Conan musical director Jimmy Vivino and surprised the guitarist with a unique presentation: a Firebird X guitar from Gibson USA. Even though the guitar is not yet in stores, Vivino was able to lay his hands on this much anticipated, groundbreaking instrument.

Fortunately, Gibson.com had a camera in the room to catch the presentation and, interestingly, record Juszkiewicz discussing the Firebird X in great detail with the renowned artist.
