Gibson Firebird lll 1965 Sunburst
1965 Gibson Firebird lll, sunburst finish, rare "non-reversed" peghead,
5 piece laminate through-body construction, banjo tuners, compensated wraparound bridge with vibrato tailpiece.
We think Gibson made a rack of 20 or so Reverse Firebird lll's at the end of the run using up left-handed neck blanks... 17 have been documented so far.
This beautiful guitar is in excellent condition, no cracks, breaks or repairs - just normal playwear, surface scratches and body-edge dings you would expect to find on a Firebird of this vintage. The chrome hardware is tarnished, frets are in very good condition, and the entire guitar glows with vintage patina and mojo....... it looks, plays and sounds great!
With the exception of a replacement bone nut, it is in completely original condition, including the factory hard case.
