    I am considering this purchase....


    2002 Gibson Firebird VII-
    MINT! In very rare "copper" finish with nickel hardware, 3 Mini-Humbuckers, Plush OHSC, MSRP for this on Gibson's site is $3265!!! Yikes! Plays and sounds Great!
    $1600 THIS WEEKEND ONLY...As we are coming up for a wedding. Probably leaving Sunday Eve.

    Please feel free to call with any questions or offers. Although I am selling this to pay for school loans... I am still looking for a Gibson ES335, 347, Fender Tele, etc...

    Thanks a bunch!

    Well, that's the first guitar I've ever seen that came with a vibrator.

    Just buy it...and if you don't like it, you know who to call.

    A few years back I did some shows with Joe Mavety, former guitarist for Marianne Faithfull...he was using an identical Firebird and sounded just fine.

    Meh...never liked the new firebirds...never that crazy about the old ones except a particular reverse with two p90s- that was a nice one. So I'm betting it's really bright and neck heavy with a fragile neck the protrudes...

    Let us know what you do-

    I seem bitchy- right?

    Sorry-

    I saw one exactly like it at one of the Philly shows a few years ago. Cool guitar-I prefer the Firebird I or the non-reverse reissue in Olympic White (Gibson's version anyway) but cool nontheless especially with nickel hardware instead of gold.

    I've seen a few of these and I think his flash is really skewing the actual color, making it look a lot golder than the ones I've seen. Gibson's copper finish has a lot more red and brown mixed in.

    This is more representative of the color

    Buy it, Buy it...
    Do it. Do it now.
    If you've got the means at your disposal go get it, or at least go check it out. It looks fantastic.
