Designed in black and gold, these Custom models feature 490R neck and 498T bridge pickups and Richlite fretboards with custom block pearl inlays. Gibson used Richlite in an effort to maintain quality and still comply with CITES restrictions regarding the over-use of rare woods such as ebony.
Each guitar incorporates a mahogany body and neck while the Firebird Custom’s set neck is a notable difference from the through neck construction of a standard Firebird.
These four Custom guitars include a Gibson Custom Shop hard case and are available in a limited run.
Gibson are distributed in Australia through Australian Musical Imports.
