Nobody knows guitars quite like blues hero Joe Bonamassa, and now you can get one of his finest signature models, the Epiphone ‘Treasure’ Firebird-I, for a bargain figure.

The good folk at Musician’s Friend have slashed $200 off the asking price for this rare ’bird, taking the grand total down to $599, from $799.

That’s quite a deal, especially when you consider the model is based on Bonamassa’s original ’63 Firebird, and packs a mahogany body with thru-neck construction, single ProBucker FB720 pickup and luxurious Polymist Gold finish.

We called it “an incredible guitar for the price” in our review, and as Bonamassa himself puts it, “We A/B'd the new Epiphone with my two original ’63s. The Epis play and sound better. Ugh... I just paid $12,000 for one.”

One thing’s for sure: this deal is certainly cheaper than that.
