A `Treasured` Vintage Firebird Reborn:
-The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa "Treasure" Firebird-I was closely modeled after Joe`s original 1963 Firebird.
Joe worked closely with Epiphone`s legendary luthiers in Nashville, Tennessee to recreate his rare single pickup Firebird that was made in the first year of the guitar`s production at the Epiphone & Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. And according to Joe, the new Epiphone `Treasure` Firebird-I far exceeded his expectations. `The guitar is called "Treasure" as it`s based on the `63 Firebird that was graciously gifted to me 4 years ago,` said Bonamassa. `We A/B`d the new Epiphone with my two original 63s. The Epi`s play and sound better! Ugh... I just paid $12,000 for one!`
