Elliot Easton Firebird Debuts Today
Elliot Easton of the Cars has always been a fan of Gibson electrics, and now, Gibson is proud to unveil a new Signature created hand-in-hand with Easton: the Elliot Easton Firebird, available in both left- and right-handed models.
Sporting an exclusive new Gold Mist Poly finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, the Elliot Easton Firebird offers a dazzling look in the classic and ever-radical “reverse body” Firebird design, augmented by its hot-stamped Tiki graphic on a traditional multi-ply white plastic pickguard and Elliot Easton’s signature on the headstock’s back.
The guitar is powered by a pair of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups with versatile coil-splitting and phase-reverse wiring for unprecedented sonic variety. A Bigsby™ vibrato tailpiece with Vibramate™ Spoiler® for easy string loading gives you emotive dips and tremulous wobbles, while a new TonePros™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge with nylon saddles offers excellent return-to-pitch during vibrato use. For tuning, a set of Steinberger™ gearless tuners give unparalleled tuning efficiency.
