Famed guitar manufacturer, Gibson has a treat in store for all you amateur and professional guitarists. The company recently unveiled its newest creation, the Firebird X, at a press conference at New York’s Hard Rock Café which saw the company chairman, Henry Juszkiewicz smash a traditional guitar and then unveil their latest offering. Impressing the guitar lover with its stunning design and make, the Firebird X with its ash body and maple neck makes one hell of a statement. Equipped with a piezo pickup at the bridge and three magnetic hum buckers, along with a guitar effects processing system built into the body of the instrument and the Robot self-tuning system, this guitar screams high-tech revolution in the world of musical instruments.
That’s not all; the high-tech guitar comes equipped with Ableton Live 8 and Guitar Rig 4 Pro software, Bluetooth wireless technology, two foot pedals and rechargeable batteries. Although my knowledge of guitars is next to negligent, I can confidently say that the Firebird X is one hell of a must-have creation for the guitar enthusiast.
The awesome guitar is expected to retail for $5570. The Firebird X is expected to be available for sale from 11 December. However it is a limited edition creation and restricted to only 1800 pieces. For more info on the tech specs of this beauty, click here.
