So I realize that they cancelled this guitar, however, I was wondering is the Firebird V worth the 1500 dollars, or is there a website where I can get a guitar that is like the firebird studio. It does not have to be gibson, I just want the same design and a similar sound. Unless there is a place where I could buy a Firebird Studio, I would do that first, but I haven't found that place yet.

i bought a firebird studio in march last year, only cost about 1200, and it was well worth it. sounds amazing, the only complaints i have are the back of the neck is kind of sticky and they didnt have any red ones.

but i would say that a firebird V would definately be worth it.

I haven't tried a V yet, do you know are the pickups as good as the ones in the studio, and are they good for classic/alt rock.

I looked at the website and it is really cool, however I don't have the time to build the guitar myself, so will warmoth build it for me or do I have to build it myself?

I think Epiphone still makes theirs. Obviously not as good quality, but still gig-worthy imo.

speaking of which, I'm thinking about giving theirs a try as my next guitar.

could a Firebird do 60's jangle-pop, and also do 80's (Bon Jovi, David Bowie, Duran Duran, etc.)? I will be using a Fender Blues Jr. as my amp.

Could it still do this^ ?

Not sure (but if they do I know it will cost extra) you might just wanna go to a local guitar shop or luthier (Not a guitar Center or Sam Ash or some other huge chain store) and see if they'll put it together they'd probably even be excited to do it. It might cost less.
