Used – Gibson Custom Shop 1965 Firebird V Limited Edition – Vintage Sunburst (2015)

Serial Number: #150165
Weight: 8 lbs 11 oz

Conceived amid the chrome and tailfins of the Motor City, forged on the workbenches of Kalamazoo, proven on rock and blues stages around the globe, the Gibson Firebird was one of the most radical instruments the world had ever experienced when it hit the scene in 1963, and it’s still a guaranteed head-turner today. Its classic reverse-body styling and Custom Color appointments strike a pose that is truly unique, and tonally it’s a bird apart too: its powerful yet bright Mini-Humbuckers and through-neck construction contribute to a sound that’s both cutting and sustaining. Only around 925 Firebird V guitars were produced between 1963-’65 , including the  “few “non-reverse” Firebirds in the transition period that marked the demise of the rare, original “reverse-body” styling.
