Gibson Firebird III, Woodstain , 1965
Lovely 1965 geet, new to the collection, thx to Gaz Ayers. This is one of a limited run and produced in fewer than 200 units. Kitted out with three powerful P-90s, it is more than a match for the later 3-Humbucker Gibson Les Paul models. Most models were issued with 2 humbuckers, however this one is the 3-pup version. It’s a big guitar but balances well and doesn’t seem to suffer from neck dive or so. The condition is great, quite remarkable for a 50-plus year old guitar. Not quite mint but not vastly different. Even the original case is in good nick albeit covered in stickers acquired over the past 5 decades. For the time being in the collection, however if you twist my arm….
