Dave Grohl’s Gibson Firebird Studio (White)

This Gibson Firebird Studio seemed to have been a backup for Dave’s black Firebird around 2005/06. Based on the footage available, it seems that the white was used a lot less than the black one, therefore the assumption that it was just a backup. Also, the black Firebird made it into 2007/08, while the white one was nowhere to be seen at that point.

Unfortunately, not much is known about the guitar, aside from what can be deducted from the photos.

It’s a 2000s Firebird Studio, obviously, finished in white. The pickups in it, assuming the guitar is stock, are the Gibson 490R and 498T humbuckers.
