1964 Gibson Firebird V
1964 Gibson Firebird V in excellent condition. This all original guitar is an exceptional example of the early Firebirds. These are like no other guitar with there offset neck through construction and unique pickups. The clarity of the Firebird pickups has such a wonderful sound played clean or overdriven. The finish is all original. The back of the guitar is shaded dark which is unusual. It is likely that there was a finish issue at the factory and to cover a mistake it was shaded darker. A technique frequently applied by Gibson in the 1960s. We are confident it is original to the guitar. The electronics are untouched original and work flawlessly. The pickguard has one small crack near the lower bout tip other wise in excellent shape. The Firebird logo retains most of its original red paint. It is housed in a new Gibson Firebird case and includes the original as well.
