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.
