NGD: Gibson NR Firebird COPPER

Well I made an offer that I thought could be refused and I bought myself a new guitar. It's comfortable, and sounds great. I recently got out of the humbucker Gibson game and now I'm back. The decoboom guard is stupid nice. I wouldn't have changed it from stock as I really dig the bird, but it is perfectly suited to the guitar.

Man, that looks cool. I think I'd like it better if the humbuckers had silver covers, but that's just me.

That's super cool. The Decoboom guard on the orange/copper is my favorite part!!

I hope it plays 1% better or worse than it looks, and you can never figure out which way.

This might be the greatest comment I've ever read. 100% will steal it.

The guitar is rad too.

Hey man, just curious - do you still have this? Wondering how it's treated you, found a decent deal on one and considering jumping on it. I'd want to swap most of the stuff on it, just really drawn in by that nitro copper finish.

I actually just sold mine. The value crept up and I couldn't justify hanging on to it. It is a very comfortable guitar. I'm a sucker for that finish too.
