Rare and collectible limited edition Joe Bonamassa signature 'Treasure' Firebird. This beauty is in near-mint condition with just 1 tiny blemish on the edge as pictured.

 

This model was closely modelled after Joe’s original 1963 Firebird, and he worked closely with Epiphone’s legendary luthiers in Nashville, Tennessee to recreate his rare single pickup Firebird that was made in the first year of the guitar’s production at the Epiphone & Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

 

It features a Mahogany body with a 9-piece Laminated Mahogany/Walnut neck with a period-correct early 1960s Rounded “C” profile measured after Joe’s original. Epiphone improved on the vintage neck design by including a dual action adjustable truss rod. The Firebird was the first electric guitar to feature “thru-neck” construction along with the iconic Reverse Firebird body shape.  The neck has a Rosewood fingerboard with a 14” radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, classic “Dot” inlays, and a 24.75” scale length. It has Kluson re-issue original Firebird/Banjo style tuners.

 

It's powered by the new ProBucker FB720 pickup, reconstructed at Epiphone to the original specifications of Gibson Firebird pickups from the mid 60s. It has two Alnico II bar magnets used as blades in coils along with a steel reflector plate to achieve the classic Firebird tone of the 60s. Because the DC resistance is around 7.85Kohm, the ProBucker FB720 provides a clean, brighter output with incredible touch sensitivity and a warm low end compared to mini humbuckers, which are used in most Firebird reissues. Controls include Master Volume and Master Tone with Gold “Top Hat” knobs with metal inserts and pointers. 

 

It comes with a set of straplocks as pictured, plus a brand new gig bag to protect it.
