The combination of our traditional square-shoulder dreadnought body and the bright, crisp tone of koa back and sides gives the Firebird a rich, balanced tone all its own. No less stunning in appearance, the guitar's exquisitely figured koa back and sides are enhanced by mother-of-pearl and abalone flame inlays in the bridge and fingerboard, with a magnificent MOP and abalone phoenix rising from the flames on the headstock. An engraved and hand painted pickguard completes the picture, and an L.R. Baggs Element VTC allows plug-and-play ease in any performance situation. Limited to only 50 handmade instruments for the worldwide limited run.
