    Re: Bonamassa Signature Firebird I?

    I hope so. I had to confirm balance and pay up. Won't be able to play it at all when it does come. My mega Houdini arm sling doesn't come off till Dec 2nd. Then 6 more weeks in a regular sling and intensive therapy.

    My arm hurts so bad I want to scream. No more morphine or oxi, I can't carry a monkey on my back, too. I'd rather hurt. The 'bird is for inspiration.
    The older I get, the better I was.

    An excellent choice! I'd love to have a Gibson Firebird I!

    Re: Bonamassa Signature Firebird I?

    I noticed that Joe's website was showing that the 'Birds were available again. I contacted somebody in customer service regarding shipping schedules. She told me that they are getting the guitars first, before other distributors...which makes sense.
    They're getting the first shipment the week of Thanksgiving, the second..the week after and the third (and last), the first week of Dec.
    I cancelled my order elsewhere and will happily pay the freight to make sure I get delivery this year.

    The woman that helped me out is Michelle Stolzenburg and she was a huge help as I was having issues with PP Credit and this transaction. She made it all happen! They get them in 11/28/16
    Really looking forward to it! this will made my second one pickup guitar. I just bought a 1961 Epiphone Olympic (SB277). It's basically a one pickup, single cutaway Melody Maker, Les Paul body shape.

    Bonus!! Very cool if this is right and I seriously doubt that Joe would want poly for a finish as he's pretty much a vintage spec guy!

    Sweet Water told me yesterday that I am scheduled for mid December, and that there were many more people behind me than in front.

    Excellent! Be interesting to hear the first reports and find out actually if they're as good as the prototypes. I almost hate to say it, but I'm getting excited..lol..

    Not yet, though I ordered through AMS and they're not expecting stock until December 23. Wish I'd ordered through Joe's site!

    So you're paying for it without having it? Sucks right there.

    From the VERY helpful Michelle Stolzenburg:

    "I apologize for the delayed response. Our first batch of guitars was delivered two weeks late which was received last week Thursday. Epiphone was not able to ship all the guitars we needed to fulfill all of our backorders for the Tobacco Sunburst model.
    A second batch of guitars was shipped to us today which we are expecting to receive this Thursday. This second batch will be enough to cover all backorders.
    We will begin shipping from the second batch of guitars Friday. You should expect to receive tracking information early next week.

    Did you need the guitar by a specific day? If so, let me know so that we can make the proper arrangements on our end to do our best to accommodate you."

    THAT is customer service!

    Apparently Dave's no longer has any. Weird. Sweetwater says I should have the gold one shipping out next week. Still unknown on the sunburst.

    Congrats!

    Just checked the AMS website -- the gold ones are now in stock and shipping.

    Sadly, the sunbursts (which is what I ordered) are not in stock yet.

    Just spoke to Sweetwater. They say I am at the front of their list for a Sunburst, but the first shipment has now been pushed to Jan 4th..
    Not happy...
    My JB hardcase and FB t-shirt, however, just arrived today from JB's site...
    I now have a beautiful case for a guitar I don't have...

    Wow... was hoping to have had mine so I could show it to Joe Monday night. I have an ABM nickel plated Bell Brass wrapover and some great stings(Pyramid Monel Classics) to put on it.

    Yeah, I'm pretty bummed.. I went through Sweetwater so I could take advantage of the 0% financing, but it's gonna suck waiting until January now..

    I had a quick look at it because it was saturday and a lot of people were in the shop for Christmas. Just tried it unplugged.

    The look is killer.
    The construction is great, fretwork was fine.
    Fingerboard is not the best looking i've seen, but hey, we are on a 699€ guitar so i can't complain.
    To me, finish doesn't look like nitro ... pardon me if i'm wrong.

    I'm not a Firebird expert, but the neck seems bigger to me than the std. USA Firebird. Very comfortable to play !

    I have to bring some stuff i recently bought at the store to have some fun with the guys, if the Bird is still here i'll plug it to check how it sounds !
    I hope they won't have the sunburst one, because for the price it would be VERY tempting ... even if i don't need it and i should better save money for an old 335

    If you are in Europe / France, the guitare is here (no direct affiliation with the shop)

    Me too, I'm guessing they might have done nitro on the prototypes for Joe, since the guy who ended up with one of them thought it looked & smelled like nitro on his... No biggie, I just wish I wasn't going to have to wait till next month for mine!
