Comments Here’s a very cool Gibson Custom Shop Firebird Non-Reverse from 2003, in a ‘TV White’ or ‘Limed Mahogany’ finish.

The Firebird was introduced in 1963 in the ‘Reverse’ form, where the lower cutaway is longer than the top. However, due to poor sales and some complaints from Fender, in 1965 Gibson essentialy flipped the body and head to this ‘Non-Reverse’ form. Additionally, the ‘Non-Reverse’ models use a set neck, rather than a through-neck, construction.

This Custom Shop example of the Non-Reverse model is in great shape and really fun to play.
