Does anyone on here own one of these wonderful instruments? I'm interested in the USA ones particularly and more so the VII three pickup model, which I think is not being manufactured anymore?

What I want to know at the moment is which ones are Gibson still manufacturing?

From the site it looks like the following:

- Gibson USA Firebird V (two mini-humbucker model)
- Gibson USA Firebird III (as above w/ trem and other perks, much greater cost)
- Epiphone Firebird (not interested in Epi but for the sake of completeness ...)

It seems remnants of the VII are still available second-hand, also the Firebird Studio is available new on some sites, yet is not on Gibson's site as being available? Does anyone know anything I don't?
