Dates of manufacture: 

2004

The Gibson Firebird Studio was introduced in 2004 and features the classic reverse body shape but with a conventional set neck (not-neck through)  and full-sized humbucking pickups. Gibson’s highly collectibel first-generation 1963 Firebird guitars (designed by Ray Dietrich) had the treble bout longer than the bass bout (the so-called revese body), neck-thru-body construction and mini-humbucking pickups. The Firebird Studio model maintains this vintage vibe with the reverse-body design, while its conventional set neck makee an affordable reverse-body Firebird. The full-size humbuckers are Gibson 496R and 500T units. It has a slim-taper neck and is available in Ebony, Cherry and Classic White finishes, with a choice of chrome- or gold-plated hardware.
