we have a 1965 Gibson non-reverse Firebird III in its still vibrant
Cherry finish. We’re so used to seeing this color on SG’s
and EB0’s, but it is very unusual to see it on a Firebird. This
guitar, which sports three screaming single coil P-90 pickups and a
vibrato tailpiece epitomizes Gibson’s attempt to compete against
Fender’s Stratocaster…and a beautiful job they did too.
