This Gibson Firebird III was made in the USA in 1965. We believe it to be ember red - but maybe is cardinal red. It is all original but did have other tuners on it at one point. No neck issues, but there is a repaired crack by the control cavity. The finish is original and really looks fabulous. Call for an in hand description. It comes with a non original hard case.
