Epiphone proudly presents the new Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa "Treasure" Firebird-I, the fourth Joe Bonamassa signature model in Epiphone’s long friendship with the most critically acclaimed guitarist of our generation. Featuring the ProBucker™ FB720, a one-of-a-kind faithful recreation of the original early 60s Firebird pickup. Plus Kluson®’s superb re-issue of the original Firebird/Banjo style tuners! The “Treasure” Firebird-I comes in two color finishes, Polymist Gold and Tobacco Sunburst and includes a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity signed by Joe Bonamassa.

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!”
