The combination of Gibson's traditional square-shouldered dreadnought body, coupled with the deep, warm tone of the Mystic rosewood back and sides, gives Gibson Acoustic's Firebird Custom a rich, balanced tone all its own. Its appearance is no less stunning, sporting a premium AAA-grade Sitka spruce top, with back and sides made from solid select AAA-grade Mystic rosewood.
