1965 GibsonFirebird III – Sunburst


This lightly worn 1965 Gibson Firebird III in its original Sunburst finish is a great vintage Gibson that won’t break the bank! Equipped with three original P90s, this guitar has that huge vintage Gibson tone without the huge vintage Gibson pricetag. This particular piece also sports a lighter than most Sunburst for a unique look that shows off the mahogany grain nicely. This guitar has had the nut replaced to ensure proper playing action, with everything else on this piece remaining original. There’s even a cool “House of Guitars” sticker on the back of the headstock!
