Gibson launches Firebird X

Launching on Friday September 30th, and based on the classic Gibson Firebird model, the Firebird X is enhanced with  automatic tuners and multiple built-in effect pre-sets. It is also designed to be compatible with a number of hardware and applications developed by third party companies.  

Gibson has developed a “Pure-Analog” Engine to facilitate this and is setting up an authorized App store, where vendors can sell Gibson-compliant applications.

Limited to 1,800 models in two unique finishes—Redolution and Bluevolution—the Gibson Firebird X will retail for £3,299.

“Innovation has always been the driving force at Gibson, and the Firebird X is nothing short of groundbreaking,” says Henry Juszkiewicz, Gibson Guitar Chairman and CEO. “The Gibson Firebird X is truly the most technologically-advanced guitar ever conceived with multiple built-in sounds and effects that take sonic capabilities to an entirely new level.”

All registered owners of the Firebird X gain instant entry into the Firebird X Visionary Club, an on-line community where members have exclusive access to software, patches, manuals and other supporting downloads.

Members will also be able to create and maintain personal profile pages; post and share Firebird X preset files, audio and video content; and interact with fellow Firebird X owners, artists and Gibson staff.
