Gibson 2003 Firebird V Reviews 1

IPURCHASED THIS BEAUTIFUL WHITE REISSUE 2003 FROM A USED GUITAR SHOP IN NEW YORK CITY FOR 1250.00

I LIKE SOUND, FEEL, AND CHUNKY TONES OF THIS BEAUTIFUL GUITAR..

THIS IS MY SECOND 2003 FIREBIRD V. THE FIRST HAD AN IRRITATING ELECTRIC POPPING NOISE DEFINITELY FROM THE GUITAR. COULD NOT BE ISOLATED OR FIXED. SIMILAR TO THOSE IRRITATING POP UP VIDEOS ON MTV. JUST WHEN I BE GROOVING... POP POP! I TRADED IT OFF. I CRIED. NONE OF MY OTHER GIBSONS DO THIS. I SUSPECT A DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE IN THE PICKUP WINDING SECTION IS OUT TO RUIN THEM. I'M SURE A FEW OTHER PEOPLE BY NOW HAVE BOUGHT THIS SAME GUITAR AND WILL NEVER BUY GIBSON AGAIN. SO GUESS WHAT? I JUST BOUGHT ANOTHER FIREBIRD 2003 THINKING IT WAS AN ISOLATED CASE. PLAYED FINE IN THE STORE. BUT AFTER GFETTING IT HOME. SAME THING.. POP POP POP. AGAIN MY OTHER GIBSON GUITARS ARE FINE. NO WONDER THIS LINE WAS SO SOON DISCONTINUED. I HOPE THEY WILL PUBLISH WHAT THE PROBLEM IS WITH THIS OTHERWISE PRETTY BUT UNPLAYABLE GUITAR. AND YES I WILL PASS IT ON THUS CREATING MANY OTHER ANTI GIBSON FANS

THE SPECIAL EFFECTS -POP POP POP CHASE PEOPLE AWAY.

IF GIBSON CAN'T TIGHTEN UP ON THE ELECTRONICS THEN THEY MIGHT GO AWAY
