Description

This is a very cool Gibson Firebird I, made in the USA in 1963 or 1964. It has been refinished white. The serial number is difficult to read but appears to start with 1063 which would date to 1963, although Gibson numbers are not reliable. The guitar has the multi-layer body typical of 1964 however, so we think it must be a '64. The pickup has been changed to a Gibson dirty fingers from the early 1980's and the guitar sounds incredible. There is no evidence of any previous breaks or repairs. The tuners and knobs are original. One pot is original and dates to 1963. The truss rod cover is original although the Gibson logo on it is extremely faint. The other parts appear newer. This guitar has been pro-setup in our store and plays great. It comes with the original case which is in rough condition.
