GIBSON Firebird




... I always wanted to have one of those guitars, just for looks maybe, but then I found out how destictive the sound of these guitars are.


It cuts through like a sharp knife.


.. .and it's real easy to play because this guitar is very lightweight.


I can't tell when this guitar was built but it's from the era of grey imports from the USA. The story is that some German music stores colaborated with some US music stores to import Gibson guitars to Germany. Those instruments seemed to be of better quality and consiberably cheaper than the instruments that were sold through the regular distribution channels.  Therefore it must be from the '90s, according to the pot-stamping '91.
