Gibson Firebird V 2016 T Vintage Sunburst

Gibson Firebird V 2016 is a “The re-birth of the legendary ‘Bird”. The Firebird V 2016 T is a modern update of the original but with features that are true to its early 1960’s origins. This year Gibson have upgraded the tuners to Steinberger Gearless tuning keys to perserve the distinct headstock shape. They’ve gone back to the Gibson original 1 11/16-inch neck width at the nut with a traditional Graph Tech nut and a thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish…

Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. The Firebird 2016 T packs all the sonic punch of the original with extras that elevate this guitar to the pinnacle of playability.
