1966 GibsonFirebird III (NR) – Frost Blue

This 1966 Gibson Firebird III in Frost Blue is stunningly beautiful and still looks incredible, even with age! Looking over this guitar, you will see so little wear or aging. This was clearly an under-the-bed find, and it is evident that its original owner took immense care of this guitar. They even carefully preserved their Owner’s Manual and Full Line Catalog from the same year as the guitar, tucked inside this Firebird’s pristine original case. As a Non-Reverse III, you will find three P-90s with accompanying volume and tone controls, allowing for sharp trebles and deep bass tones. With the accompanying tremolo system, you will certainly enjoy the versatility and beauty of this Firebird!
