According to Gibson they weren't any good to anyone:
"The Firebird X destruction video that surfaced months ago was an isolated batch of Firebird X models built in 2009-2011 which were unsalvageable and damaged with unsafe components. This isolated group of Firebird X models were unable to be donated for any purpose and were destroyed accordingly."

Though surely the necks or bodies were going to be alright. I dunno.

I find it hard to believe that there were no salvageable components on those guitars.

They had unsafe components? Isn't every part of the guitar unsafe? I mean, in the hands of the right person it can melt a face right off a person.
