1964 GibsonFirebird I (Reverse) – Sunburst

This 1964 Gibson Firebird I in Sunburst is vibey and worn in, showing lots of fine finish checking, play wear, and edgewear! It is well loved throughout the guitar, as you will also notice some buckle rash on the back that has worn the finish down to the wood. While this guitar is super played in, it remains all original except for a new nut. We can imagine it deteriorated over time and had to be replaced to continue playing as well as it does! These are still the original frets with lift left in them. We can tell they have been lightly played but maintained over time, so no need for an immediate refret!
