On Friday September 30th 2011 Gibson Guitar Corp will take guitar engineering to new heights with the introduction of the Gibson Firebird X
. An evolution of the 1960s classic Gibson Firebird model, the Firebird X is loaded with ground-breaking technologies like fourth-generation Robot tuners for automatic tuning, onboard effects based on computer plug-in technology, and wireless Bluetooth pedals for unsurpassed usability on stage and in the studio.
In addition, the Gibson Firebird X is designed for compatibility with hardware and applications developed by third party companies—an industry first. Gibson’s “Pure-Analog” Engine makes this possible in conjunction with 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 $5,570 msrp.
“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 effects that take sonic capabilities to an entirely new level—while retaining the classic appeal of a finely-crafted, supremely playable instrument.”
As an added bonus, all registered owners of the Firebird X gain instant entry into the Firebird X Visionaries Club, an on-line community where members have exclusive access to software, patches, manuals and other supporting downloads. In addition, members can create and maintain personal profile pages; post and share Firebird X preset files, audio and video content; and communicate/interact with fellow Firebird X owners, artists and Gibson staff.
