GIBSON | FIREBIRD | 1963 PROMO SHEET

Gibson Firebird VII

1963 Gibson promotional sheet

The Firebird VII really was the finest Gibson solid body available in mid 1963. The list price of $445 was actually $20 higher than the Les Paul (SG) Custom at the time. But the Firebird VII pulled no punches both in terms of functionality or ornamentation. With three humbuckers, gold hardware, an ebony fretboard and large pearl block inlays starting at the first fret, it was certainly a fine looking guitar.

WINCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, 01890, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

As with Fender, Gibson painted some guitars with an assortment of custom automotive colors, a trend that peaked in the mid-1960’s. Custom color Gibson solidbodies are few and far between, with Frost Blue an especially hard to find color. This 1968 Firebird is one of only a handful of surviving Frost Blue Firebirds. She has an older refin but retains the original Frost Blue under the pickguard and the control cavities and has her original frets with plenty of life. With two P-90 pickups, ... more

Vintage Gibson Firebird Case 1960's / 1970's??

PALM HARBOR, FLORIDA, 34683, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$275

This case came to me with a Bicentennial 1976 Gibson Firebird 1 in it. The guitar was beyond repair unfortunately, so it was parted out. This case is very usable, but shows years of wear. Not entirely sure of it's age but from my experience it looks to be 1960's to 1970's. It has some extra latches added to supplement the original latches. Leather strap inside case is present but broken. This would be a great addition to anyone's vintage Gibson collection. Free shipping inside continental USA ... more
