SOLD! - 1965 Gibson Firebird V Non Reverse Cherry
This is an incredibly rare 1965 Firebird V that was custom ordered in Cherry by the original owner!
It includes a letter from the original owner that states that his parents bought him a Gibson Firebird guitar in 1964 but that one of the wings of the body delaminated from the guitar. Since they lived only a few hour's drive from the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, his mom drove him to the factory to see if Gibson would repair the guitar. Apparently the factory was unable to repair the guitar so they brought out a brand new Gibson Firebird V to replace the old one. It happened to be one of a handfull finished in Cherry Red which was not a catalog option for the Firebird guitars!
This Firebird is 100% original (no breaks, cracks, or repairs) and is in excellent condition as you can see. It comes with the original case, hang tag, case candy, strap, coil cable and mentioned letter.
