2008 Gibson CS Non-Reverse TV White Firebird (consignment)  SOLD

Gibson introduced the Firebird in 1963 to compete with the offset body styles that Fender was making so popular. Following poor sales and complaints from Fender, in 1965 Gibson basically flipped the design over to make the ‘non-reverse’ models. These were produced until 1969.

Gibson Custom Shop Firebird Non-Reverse, 2003   SOLD

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, 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.
