Here we have a literally jaw-dropping Gibson Firebird V from 2012 in Classic White nitro finish.

This rare find is in mint condition and features the reverse body and reverse headstock, just like when it came out in 1963, designed by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich (designer of classic Lincoln and Packard cars).

The neck is a faithful nine-piece mahogany and walnut neck-through-body construction, which gives the Firebird its characteristic incredible resonance when played acoustically. 

This neck-through construction with glued mahogany 'wings' in conjunction with the 495R (neck) and 495T (bridge) mini humbucker pickups means the The Firebird V is capable of delivering snappy yet fat tones. 

The Headtock is loaded with a nod to modernity in the shape of a sextet of Steinberger gearless tuners, providing a discreet substitute for the banjo-style tuners sported by original 'birds without disrupting the headstock's iconic lines. The Steinberger units are much smoother and altogether more precise in operation. They're a clever and welcome addition.

The guitar has been professionally set-up, comes with original Gibson hard case and Certificate of Authenticity.

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
