Carlos Santana's 1963 Firebird lll
1963 Gibson Firebird III "Reverse" (ex Carlos Santana)
Carlos Santana's first year Firebird lll model. This incredible guitar weighs just 7.90 lbs. Solid mahogany body, mahogany, neck, and bound rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. Headstock with gold-painted "Gibson" logo on black plastic truss-rod cover with three screws. All parts nickel-plated. This is one of the very earliest examples with a two-piece full length neck and a convex heel which blends into the body. Also there is no 'Firebird' emblem on the three-layer plastic pickguard. There is some fine finish checking and a few small and insignificant dents and dings mainly on the edges, but overall this amazing guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. Housed in a later Gibson black hardshell case with purple plush lining (9.25). (#1319)
