maple top? I never saw a firebird with a maple top. Even the Orville by Gibson I could play.

They are full accajou, usually 2 pieces body with a long tenon set neck.

Nice. No maple top..... they're not built like Les Pauls - more like an SG as an example.

it's a fair price yes.

usually, the Greco Fb-70 sell for that price and they're a lot cheaper (cheaper woods, urethane finish, cheaper tuners).
