Gibson Firebird X
Yes it’s a guitar, but not just any six string, hard-bodied axe.
The Gibson Firebird X probably represents the pinnacle of guitar cybernetics, equipped not only with the expected pickups and volume controls but with various ground-breaking on-board technologies that bring many of the special effects found in digital studios into the body of the guitar itself!
(A quick word about that body too: it’s the stuff of legends, first introduced as a "non-reverse" body of an alternate line of Gibson Explorers back in the 1960s. It’s unusual and the perfect shape to add to any large guitar collection.)
The Firebird X boasts automatic tuning (seriously!), Bluetooth connectivity for wireless effects pedals and there’s basically a small computer in there, managing several effects normally found in pedals. Brilliant!
You might think that $3000 for a guitar is excessive, but let's face it, it must have a good thousand dollars of electronics inside it. For looks, engineering and all round functionality, the Gibson Firebird X is genuinely a work of art.
