Presold! Gibson Clapton Firebird I 1964 Model Sunburst, 2019

Presold! Gibson Clapton Firebird I 1964 Model Sunburst, 2019

This fantastic instrument is pre-sold, but we wanted to share it. It’s a brand new Gibson Clapton Firebird, number 100 of just 100 built to re-create Clapton’s 1964 Firebird I as used in Cream. Gibson introduced the Firebird in 1963, initially using neck-through construction – while the neck section is built of several sections of Mahogany separated by Walnut for stability, it extends the full length of the guitar.

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird V Through-Neck Electric Red, 1981

This example is one of few Gibson Firebird V ‘s built during 1981. Its serial number points to production on February 23rd, 1981 at the Kalamazoo plant, and it features an unusual Red finish and Gold plated hardware. It has been refretted – necessary because it’s also been played as intended – but otherwise is in original condition. The refret was well done, and uses fairly large wire.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird Studio 2017 T Pelham Blue

The Gibson Firebird Studio 2017 T is a new version of the ‘reverse’ body Firebird, using set neck construction and standard humbucking pickups. Available in Pelham Blue and Vintage Burst, this is a great alternative to an SG. The first Firebirds appeared in 1963 in the ‘Reverse’ body shape – referring to the lower, treble cutaway ‘horn’ being longer than the usual bass side, and with neck-through construction.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Firebird T Vintage Sunburst 2017

This new Gibson Firebird T Vintage Sunburst  – The Twelfth Fret is one of the best renditions of the model that I’ve seen,  with great build quality and changes to the hardware that improve the instrument as a whole.
The very first versions of the Firebird appeared in 1963 and used a neck-through-body design. In this design, the neck was one piece of wood extending the full length of the instrument.
