This beauty is a stunning and collectible Firebird from the Gibson Custom Shop in ebony with gold hardware and block inlays. It is part of a limited run that the Gibson Custom Shop produced in 2017.
The ebony with gold hardware combo is out of this world. The build quality and tone is A . This Firebird Custom is also lightweight compared to many Firebirds I have played. The neck and weight balance feels great.
I purchased this beauty new for my collection and played it only to test upon arrival. I have stored it carefully in a humidity controlled environment. This is a rare, limited run, collectible and beautiful instrument.
There are very few of these instruments in existence, and it is almost impossible to find one in this condition. According to Gibson, only 200 of these were produced.
– mahogany top and body
– bound finish
– gold hardware and gold Grover tuners
– 490 / 498 pickups
– medium jumbo, 22 frets, with rolled binding
– gold Firebird etching on pick guard
This is an extremely well crafted and resonant instrument. In my opinion, Gibson Custom was building some of their best instruments during this time period. The workmanship and attention to detail on this guitar is impressive. It plays and sounds fantastic and has zero playtime and zero fret wear.
The tone, resonance, weight balance and quality of the finish and fretboard are out of this world.
Includes original Gibson Custom hard shell case, COA and factory packing checklist. Shipping cost includes insurance.
Available for local pickup in North San Diego. If you are outside the US, please message me so I can check international shipping rates and availability.
