When Gibson hired famed automotive designer Ray Dietrich to create a radical new solid-body guitar, Rock 'n Roll history ensued. With its offset shape, neck-through construction and scorching mini-humbuckers — the '63 Firebird V became an instant classic.

The Gibson Custom Shop is proud to present this exacting replica of a vintage original, which uses authentic contours, dimensions and construction methods for an incredible ownership and playing experience. It features a highly-coveted Maestro Vibrola too!

The Murphy Lab 'Light Aged' finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of subtle playing wear — giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from Gibson's "Golden Era".
