Purchased this a week ago and i cannot put it down.I did nothing to the guitar it was perfect when i took it home.Plays like a dream and has a very unique sound which i am really enjoying.I have a SG and Les Paul and was looking for something less common and always loved the look of a Firebird but was amazed how well it plays.The Brown Hardshell case is tough as nails and very good quality.Also included a mid quality strap and multi tool.Great fit and finish.Steinberg tuners work perfect and very accurate.It is a large guitar but very comfortable to play and lighter than a Les Paul but heavier than a SG.Gibson did a great job with this 2017 Firebird T and a great value with the Hardshell case.

Incredible sustain from the neck-through-body construction & screaming mini humbuckers gives the Firebird a sound all its own. It has the slimmest neck of any guitar on Gibson's lineup, so lead is a dream on this. I've also got an SG, & while my Firebird doesn't have the same awesome high gain output pups, the mini humbuckers can go from soft jazzy blues to screaming lead tones instantly. Responds to volume pot adjustments really well for tone shaping.
