This 2016 Firebird pretty much looks like a new guitar.  

It does seem that either the factory or someone made a wiring mistake, reversing the bridge and neck volume and tone controls - something we picked up during our extensive quality check.  The bridge pickup controls are usually closest to the treble side of the body, but those are the neck pickup controls and vice versa.

Other than that observation, the guitar is incredibly clean and is free of repairs or issues. Frets are very clean.  Setup was easy and there is plenty of room for future adjustment.  

A sweet SKB semi soft case is included.  Though we didn't get it in pictures, there is an original Gibson warranty paper included.
