Based on Bonamassa’s Rare ’63 Firebird
With Epiphone’s vintage-voiced ProBucker FB720 pickup and classic Firebird style, the Epiphone Limited Edition Joe Bonamassa “Treasure” Firebird-I solidbody electric guitar is ready to rock. It’s based on Bonamassa’s rare single-pickup 1963 Firebird, complete with a period-correct early ’60s rounded “C” neck profile and Kluson reissue Firebird/Banjo tuners. The tone is glorious, with enhanced sustain courtesy of the neck-through construction. It’s the fourth Bonamassa signature guitar from Epiphone, and the Limited Edition 2016 Joe Bonamassa Firebird-I is one of the most rockin’ and value-packed Firebirds we’ve seen at Sweetwater.

One pickup is all you needHow does the Epiphone Limited Edition 2016 Joe Bonamassa “Treasure” Firebird-I conjure classic ’60s Firebird tone? Its ProBucker FB720 humbucking pickup uses alnico II bar magnets as blades in coils, along with a steel reflector plate. The sound is clean and bright, with a robust low end, and very touch sensitive. Roll back the Master Volume a bit, set your tube amp at its breakup point, and you can go from extremely clean to extremely mean just with your volume knob.
Premium vintage-style tunersThe Epiphone Limited Edition 2016 Joe Bonamassa “Treasure” Firebird-I offers better tuning stability than many vintage models. It’s equipped with Kluson Reissue Firebird/Banjo tuners on its beveled headstock, with 12:1 ratio (12.6:1 winding ratio). They sure do look sweet, and you can expect exceptional tuning stability and reliable performance for years.
Exceptional sustain and stability from a 9-ply neckThis Firebird is equipped with a nine-ply mahogany/walnut neck, with a neck-through design that seriously enhances sustain and note definition. Multi-ply necks have been known to be more rigid and resistant to warping compared to single-ply necks, so you can expect decades of reliable playability from the Limited Edition 2016 Joe Bonamassa “Treasure” Firebird-I.
