  • "The FBX is such a fantastic versatile tool. The internal sounds are simply amazing. I use it all the time in the studio when I'm looking for different sounds to add to our tracks."

  • "Used the Firebird X in the Studio today. Writing the new theme for Oprah's All Stars and doing underscore for The Dr. Phil Show with Michael Egizi. Worked Great. Only had to bring one axe to do the date. Was great to go direct and control tone distortion and verb from the guitar itself. Played and sounded great. Will be the new go to axe for me." - David Kopatz
  • "I think a lot of people see the Firebird X as a Swiss Army knife live tool, and that certainly may be true, but I think this instrument really shines as a writing/ demo instrument. Classic sounds, and effects IN YOUR HANDS... And not having to stop to tune is GREAT for the creative process." - Ed Robertson Barenaked Ladies
  • "With the Firebird X I can plug directly into my amp and have access to all my quality effects. All I need is a cable. Truly revolutionary!" - Kirk Douglas The Roots
  • "A Bird in the hand is worth...all of these and more" - Jimmy Vivino Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band
  • "With the release of my new album 'Corroncho' on Nov 8 in the USA, I thought I would start writing the next one using the Revolutionary Gibson Firebird X" - Phil Manzanera Roxy Music
  • "Phenomenal" - Moby
  • "I love the Firebird X as it combines technology far superior to any guitar out there and maintains the traditional tones and feel that has made and kept Gibson the greatest guitars on the planet!" - Matt Roberts 3 Doors Down
