Gibson Non-Reverse Firebird 1 Sunburst (Vintage)
Original P90’s, Kluson Deluxe Tuners, Vibrola, No Breaks,
Gibson launched the Firebird design in 1963 with four main models: the Firebird I, II, V, and VII. Each was distinguished by different pickup and hardware configurations, though they all shared thru-body construction and a unique “reversed” body shape with a large lower horn. The Firebird I in specific used a single mini-humbucker with a combo stopbar tailpiece/bridge and an unbound fingerboard. By mid-1965, Gibson changed the Firebird (as well as its counterpart Thunderbird bass) to a more traditional “non-reversed” body shape.
