The Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Custom 1963 Firebird I offers vintage Firebird specs with a 9-ply through-body mahogany and walnut neck and mahogany body wings on both sides at an affordable price. A planetary geared Kluson® "banjo" tuners anchor the strings to the headstock, while a wraparound lightning bar bridge on the other end holds the strings in place and provides excellent sustain. While in keeping with the vintage 1963 Firebird I’s stripped-down specifications, but the electronics are premium quality with Gibson USA Firebird Mini Humbucker™ pickup with Alnico 5 magnets, CTS® potentiometers, Mallory™ capacitor, and Switchcraft ® 1/4 output jack, giving this remarkable recreation not only the look but the sound of a classic Firebird I. An Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Custom hardshell case is also included.
