Gary Moore’s Gibson Firebird

Gary acquired this guitar around 2005 and used it occasionally on stage in the following years. The guitar was completely stock, with two mini-humbuckers and a fixed bridge.

As far as the usage in the studio, Gary has said that he used the guitar on the song Preacher Man Blues from the 2008 album, Bad for You Baby.

That very thin, hard sound is a red Gibson Firebird I picked up in Finland last year. That guitar has a nice twang to it, and it really brings out the twang from the spring reverb.
