2013 Gibson Elliot Easton "Tikibird" Firebird - Gold Mist Poly

Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

Originally released in 2013, the Elliot Easton "Tikibird" Firebird is a stunning collaboration between Gibson and the famed lead guitarist of The Cars. This Firebird redux offers you a lot more than just a reverse-body design with a fancy Gold Mist Poly finish: incorporated into the blazing '57 Classic Humbuckers is coil-splitting and phase-reverse wiring for unbelievable sonic versatility. Plus, the addition of the Bigsby™ vibrato - steadied by the TonePros™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge - provides even more ways to play, all while keeping your axe in tune, thanks also to a set of Steinberger™ gearless tuners. There's a ton to unpack with this guitar, but we're not surprised - considering Easton's track record!

Gibson's Take:

Resplendent in an exclusive new Gold Mist Poly finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, the Elliot Easton “Tikibird” Firebird boasts a stunning 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. It’s 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. To top it off, a set of Steinberger™ gearless tuners give unparalleled tuning efficiency. Experience the Elliot Easton “Tikibird” Firebird today for yourself at your authorized Gibson USA dealer, and get your hands on your own inspirational alternative.
