Overview

This model marked the final iteration of the single cut Jet Firebird. DeArmond single coils were replaced with Filter'Tron humbuckers, and the "humpback" inlays were replaced with "thumbnail" inlays. One knob was dropped from the lower bout, and a second "tone" switch was added. A zero fret was also added around 1959. Later in 1961, the Jet Firebird would be updated to a double cutaway design.

The Jet Firebird was produced alongside the Silver Jet and Duo Jet models, and feature identical specifications aside from color.
