    Brand new Gibson Firebird HP 2017

    So I took the chance and ordered a Brand New Gibson Firebird HP 2017.
    With the Robocop tuners.
    Well as usual I was abit nervous as I had not tested the guitar... it came from Thomann.

    Well I got it last friday and the thing is a monster! It rings all over the fretboard with a very stiff neck and sounds as good as any guitar I ever owned.
    The neck is wide 44.3mm at the nut and its a slimtaper, that is a dream to play.

    And the Robotuners are AWESOME!!!! You heard it here Im never going back.
    I Think my Les Paul and Es335 are getting robo tuners also.
    One thing is for sure Gibson can still make guitars.
    Also the Es-335 I recently bought is also a killer.

    Well here is a clip one with a video and one without.
    They are the same clip however.

    Im playing both Bass and the Firebird Here.
    But one at a time...

    You lost me at "slim taper". If they made one chunky I'd buy. I used to love the slim ones, but age and stupidity crept in. Love the guitars and they DO sound good though! Robotuners? I am NOT going there girlfriend! But I am glad you like them. Killer axe! Congrats!
    Renderit, You have an interesting perspective and your posts aren't boring...
    Ren, all in all, I'm giving you a C- today's posts...
    Most of what you write with regards to my posts is cryptic nonsensical gibberish like this. I would prefer if you actually added something to the conversation but hey, I haven't walked in your shoes. So being as nice as possible: I look at your posts as if I was dealing with an eccentric cousin who comes to visit unannounced.

    Well the neck is not like the usual slim tapers. It is a very wide and extremly comfy fast neck its effing awesome.
    This is the new robotuners and its sweet to just have to press a button and everything is in tune in a second.

    It is not like the first generation were the strings stuck in the brass nut this is a harder titan nut and I think the Robotuners also are updated.
    Its really cool not having to tune every other song.

    Just try one and make up your own mind I was very surprised.

    Nice Firebird glad to hear you like the robo tuners ! I own two firebird Vs great guitars and love the neck profile on these guitars . Enjoy your firebird they are great guitars !
    He was a sonic disaster, thinking hours of practice would make up for stock pickups, poorly carved top and The wrong glue !

    Yes, I agree. I tend to love all kinds of profiles if the guitar sounds really good.
    But this one with the slightly wider nut 9 piece stiff neck and not super deep really is awesome.

    Let me put it like this! What I cannot do on this guitar I cannot do on any other either.
    I have had alot of guitars and I think Gibson is in the second Golden era now.

    Most new Gibson guitars USA and CS ( I have played) are bright stingy and has alot of sustain!
