Gibson Firebird VII Historic 1965 Reissue Electric Guitar - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Crafted with the help of car designer Ray Dietrich, the Gibson Firebird first appeared in 1963. The angular, reverse off-set design is eye-catching and iconic, and it was the first Gibson solid body to have a through-neck design. The Firebird VII was the most appointed of the range, featuring three specially crafted pickups, gold hardware and an ebony fretboard. Gibson briefly shifted to a 'non-reverse' style before discontinuing the line in 1970, but this 1999 reissue hearkens back to the original. This particular model comes to us from a trusted customer, is in excellent condition, and comes with its original hard case.
