Cosmetic Condition: This 1965 Gibson Firebird VII is mythical and legendary. It almost feels like you’re holding the Loch Ness Monster in your hands when you first pick it up. Mythos aside, this guitar is totally stunning, and extremely rare. It’s in good shape for its age, but has plenty of wear throughout the body in the form of dents, play wear and gorgeous checking lines. The top of the body has two large dents in the finish, one on the bass side horn and the other just below the volume knob, There is a small dent in the tail piece. There are several small marks of edgewear along the body. The back has checking lines and some light buckle rash but is looking good. The back plate doesn’t fit the cavity with exact precision. The neck has some light damage to the finish near the 12th fret, and is adorned with plenty of checking lines. The headstock has some edgewear but has no breaks and looks stellar. This rare bird confirms the saying that legends never die!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
Weight: 7lbs 7oz
Case: Original hardshell case, two of the latches are broken.
