On Friday September 30th 2011 Gibson Guitar Corp will take guitar engineering to new heights with the introduction of the Gibson Firebird X (www.gibson.com/firebirdx). 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-Analogâ„¢” 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.
