Tell me a tale of Gibson Firebirds...(please)

So I've developed quite the crush on Firebirds.

 

Not down for spending $1500 or anything, but I really want something with the body of this guitar.

 

What models should I look into? How are the Studios? Does the raised center make a large difference in the elusive tone?

Yeah the Studios look nice. Really like the sunburst and cherry.

 

Just wondering if the quality is good...I've played some very mediocre Studio LP's for their cost...

 

Also the raised center of the other ones, it would make some difference in sustain or resonance? Worth it or nay?

I had a 70's/8-'s Burny that was the TiT$, but I never bonded with the neck....odd, cuz near the cowbpy-region it was narrow, but the mid-to-octave region just didn't quite do it....but it as a GREAT guitar. The pickups rival'd ANY gibson product I've played:

Pictured here, next to my burny LP....still have the LP.

My '67 NR is, on the other hand, on the very short "Bury Me With It List".
Dayum, I love this thing...the old P90's cannot be beat, not by any LP or SG or anything else.
Tho re-fin'd bitd, it is stil one of my top 3 guitars:
