Gibson USA Elliot Easton “Tikibird” Firebird

As a member of Boston hit makers The Cars, and a consummate musician in his own right, Elliot Easton has consistently bridged the gap between chart success and innovative, alternative guitar playing. From early Cars singles like “Just What I Needed” and “My Best Friend’s Girl,” to 1981’s “Shake It Up” (the band’s first Top 10 hit), Elliot’s creative, often quirky and frenetic riffs provided the propulsion to a driving and energetic sound and in the process, Easton became a massively influential artist. An enduring fan of Gibson electrics, Elliot has long been associated with a Signature SG. Now the artist and Gibson USA team up for a more alternative Signature model blending classic features with several player approved advances. Here are the details: Gold Mist Poly finish, Solid Mahogany body, .800” at the 1st fret and 0.850” at the 12th fret shaped Multi piece Mahogany neck with a bound Grade A Rosewood fingerboard and medium jumbo frets, ’57 Classic bridge and neck pickups with four slide switches for coil tap, phase reversal, and pure true bypass switching, TonePros tune-o-matic bridge with Nylon saddles, Bigsby vibrato with a Vibramate Spoiler string loader tailpiece, Steinberger gearless tuners, With hardshell case
