1981 Gibson Firebird II FM Artist CMT Sunburst

$ 5939.00

Up for sale is a super cool and hard to find 1981 Gibson Firebird II FM Artist CMT Sunburst. CMT stands for curly maple top and apparently this variation was only offered for a short time in limited numbers. This instrument came out of a collection of guitars that came from an ex Kalamazoo Gibson employee. It is marked “second” indicating a finish flaw or ding when it left Gibson. This is likely how the original owner ended up with it. This is the first and only time this guitar has been on the market and it is in very good condition less some light handling and finish wear and some finish wear on the bass side lower bout of the body, front and back. Pro setup in house and comes complete with its original hard case. Weight: 9lbs. 11oz.


We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage products as accurately as possible in our listings.  Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so.  We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is “normal” for the age of the instrument.  Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing.

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear.  If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have.  Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
