When you want to play with fire, pick up a Gibson Firebird. This instrument features a solid body, deriving from mahogany. Guitar manufacturer Gibson began producing this guitar in 1963. It is the first in the Gibson family to sport a through-body design, meaning the neck extends all the way to the end of the body, instead of having a set neck, which appears in most other models. Gibson creates the Gibson Firebird with a unique body style, owing its origins to the Explorer, an earlier guitar from Gibson dating back to the 1950s. The company enlisted the help of a car designer, striving for an instrument with popular appeal. The team created this guitar with noticeably round edges, emulating the design of car tail-fins. Older models feature a unique reverse design, where the right horn on the body extends beyond the end of the left horn, creating a bottom-heavy look. This model features a sharp, rich sound, deriving from its solid construction, which marks a design change from earlier Gibson guitars, with hollow and semi-hollow designs. On eBay, a large inventory lets you choose among guitars of all styles and ages. You can look for originals, or consider a pickup, with changes, design and construction, dating to the early 1990s.
