Gibson has introduced The Firebird X digital guitar, a new guitar that applies digital technology to the traditional guitar.

The Firebird X features a lightweight body made from hand-sorted swamp ash, with a rock maple neck and curly maple fingerboard. The guitar is a bit more than six pounds in total weight. Special resonant chambers not only decrease total weight, but also allow acoustic-like tones and increased overall sustain.

The guitar is louder than a typical solid body with substantial tone from lowest bass note to highest treble note.
