1966 GibsonFirebird V (Non-Reverse) – Pelham Blue

This 1966 Gibson Firebird V (Non-Reverse) has aged like a fine wine in its original Pelham Blue finish! Overall, this piece is in excellent condition, and the mild aging of the clear coat has almost given it a slight “Inverness” look. It features two well-balanced mini-humbucking pickups, a clean Lyre Maestro Vibrola, and a three-way toggle switch. It feels and sounds as good as it looks, with a beautifully sculpted neck and comfortable playing action up and down the neck!

Overall Condition: 9.5, weather checking, very light swirling
