Gibson Firebird VII Cherry SOLD.

£2,000.00

Gibson Firebird VII Cherry Red 2004 Vibrola OHSC

Serial Number 02454655

A faithful reissue of the Firebird’s 1963-64 specifications. Boasting vintage spec ‘banjo’ tuners and a long frame Maestro Lyre Vibrola. ¬†Powerful, chimey, and wound particularly hot, the pickups have a distinct tonal character that sets them apart from a traditional mini humbucker. Whether you’re looking for detailed cleans or saturated overdriven tones, the mahogany/walnut construction of this Firebird and the top notch pickups help you achieve tones applicable to a wide range of genres.

The neck features a slender C shaped profile, with bound ebony fretboard inlaid with pearl blocks. Unlike other Firebird models which have rosewood boards, the ebony fretboard on this VII adds that distinct clarity and attack for which this tone wood is known, giving focus to the hot pickups.

The overall condition is very good, there are some honest play marks and a couple of minor dings as photographed, nothing that detracts from overall playability of the guitar or the fantastic looks! A great guitar to play, just setup with 10’s here at the 12th Fret Workshop.

Please feel free to email or call 01435 205050 if you would like to try this guitar out.
