This has to be the Classiest guitar ever! I love the way it looks and sounds :D

Also, it's pretty rare, I mean I don't see a lot of guitarists having one.

I wouldn't say they are rare, Gibson makes them every year, I think MF is blowing out the 2016s for like $1100. I had one, it was cool and surprisingly light, but the headstock tended to dive if you took your hand off it and just let the strap support the weight

What I meant by "rare" is that I don't see a lot of guitarists owning or playing a FB. What do you mean by "the headstock tended to dive"?

I dig the Firebirds. They're pretty widely used imho. Cid is right in that they are heavily discounted on closeout and - with nylon straps like the SG to some extent - the headstock tends to drop due to the weight/shape but so did my AR2000 before moving the strap pin from the upper horn to the body rear. It's just that many here would pay $1500 for an indo premium jem over $1100 for USA made Firebird neck-thru.
