(SOLD) Epiphone Firebird Olive Drab Green 2020
Epiphone Firebird, limited run olive drab green finish, made in China 2020. The Firebird is perenially cool, it's one of the most stylish guitar designs ever. This one is wearing a suave coat of olive drab, or army green... it's an unusual colour and looks superbly cool. The neck is a fairly chunky D shape, which feels sturdy in the hands and balances well against the body. The tone on offer is very percussive, with abounding attack and a snarky top end, balanced by a wide and slightly grindy midrange that loves a snappy riff or a palm muted chord. I can't help playing Lenny Kravitz tunes when I pick this one up, do I need to see a doctor about that or am I fine?
