    Product Description

    Blues-rock pioneer Johnny Winter was synonymous with Gibson's Firebird electric guitar model. To pay tribute to the late legend, the American giant's Custom Shop division has created a stunning replica of Winter's renowned '64 Firebird to an astonishing level of detail and accuracy — from the plugged holes of the removed Maestro Vibrola, to the faded Firebird logo on the pickguard.

    Other noteworthy features include a 9-ply Mahogany/Walnut neck-through-body with Mahogany wings, a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays, two Alnico 5 Firebird pickups, deluxe "banjo" tuners, and a Murphy Lab custom-aged Polaris White finish. It's the ultimate instrument for Johnny Winter fans!

    Key Features

    • Murphy Lab Finish — Artificially-aged nitro finish gives the guitar a played-in look and feel; just like a real '64 Firebird!
    • Neck-Through Construction — Yields the thick and sustain-rich sound that Gibson Firebirds are coveted for.
    • Authentic '64 Neck Shape — 'Medium C' profile provides superb comfort and a real "time capsule" feel.
    • Indian Rosewood Fingerboard — Smooth and silky material, featuring a comfortable 12" radius and 22 reissue frets.
    • Gibson Firebird Alnico 5 Pickups — Punchy mini humbuckers allow you to cut through the mix with ease; delivering tight lows, barking mid-range and vibrant highs.
    • No-Wire ABR-1 Bridge — Legendary Gibson 'Tune-O-Matic' design. Easily-adjustable and maximises string vibration transference through the body.
    • Deluxe Banjo Tuners — What Firebirds are known for! Allow for precise string pitching and complement the elegant headstock design.
