What we say:
At A Glance
The Gibson Custom Shop 1963 Firebird V is one for those who love vintage era guitars but with a ton of style. The distinctive offset body shape, created by automotive designer Ray Dietrich, has become an iconic sight. This replica of a true original matches all of the contours and dimensions. An authentic '63 Medium C neck shape lets the player feel like they have stepped back in time to when larger necks were the standard. It takes the authenticity one step further by also using the same construction methods to bring this instrument to life. It also sounds as good as it looks and lets the player delve into a world of classic tones. The Maestro Vibrola and the reversed headstock complete the look, making this a dream to look at and play. The incredibly talented craftspeople at Gibson Custom Shop have done an amazing job with this beautiful instrument.
Features We Love:
Alnico V Pickups
These Firebird Alnico V mini humbuckers arm the guitar with a ready to rock tone. The hot output is great for bringing extra attitude to big riffs and pushing a valve amp into crunchy break up. Providing an endless amount of fun, these will be great for any style that requires a bit of extra vigour.
The Maestro Vibrola adds tremolo capabilities to this already impressive instrument. This is perfect for players who like to add a bit of smooth vibrato to their playing. It also looks the part and matches with the nickel pickup covers.
The construction of this guitar is impressively solid. A 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck through construction make for an extremely resonant instrument. Sustain is also great and adds to the overall playing experience.
- Gibson Custom Shop level of quality and craft
- A recreation of an iconic model
- Perfect for those who want to have a vintage style guitar but without the issues that can some with a guitar of significant age
