    I think I'm keeping out of this thread now. I really don't like Firebirds - which is exactly what I thought about Jazzmasters a couple of years back - I have 2 now and I'm plotting a third...

    I'm already getting these funny feelings looking at the pics here.

    Hoping the plethora of pics and vids posted highlights how many top notch players find the Firebird to be a worthy choice!

    I’m always reminded of the old frat boy joke.
    What’s the difference between a porcupine and a Firebird?
    I’ll leave the punch line up to your (vivid) imagination.

    The two players most responsible for me coveting and eventually buying one were Allen Collins and Ronnie Wood.

    Mine is currently in desperate need of a decent professional setup. I just don’t have the skill.



    And for this one, go to the 11:00 mark to hear what I consider to be THE Firebird tone:

    Can't believe it took so long to mention Johnnie Winter and Skynyrd in this thread.

    Probably the first time I ever saw a Firebird would have been on Top of the Pops over here, early 70's Roxy Music with Phil Manzanera.

    Possibly a better version, solo starts 1.33

    The tone of a sliding Firebird on the neck pickup is something I never get tired of
