Here we have a Gibson Firebird VII, Commemorative Issue in Wood-stain made in USA in 1994. This guitar is one of a limited run to commemorate the 100 Year anniversary of Orville Gibson as founder of the Gibson Guitar and Mandolin Co.,  and produced in around 100 units. Kitted out with three powerful Mini Humbuckers it is a powerhouse of sound. Gibson Firebirds have their origin in. The 1960s and have been the guitar of choice for icons such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, and Johnny Winter to name but a few. Most Firebird models Reverse and Non-reverse were issued with 2 humbuckers, however the 3-pup version was quite common too. It’s a big heavy guitar but balances well and doesn’t seem to suffer from neck dive or so. Guitar lives in its leather hard-case with plush blue and purple lining.
