The “reverse bodied” Firebird VII was a revolutionary design when it first left Kalamazoo 50 years ago, and has remained about as “custom” as it gets in the years since. This special 20th Anniversary 1965 Firebird VII Reissue captures all the radical design elements and key features of this groundbreaking instrument in a guitar whose looks befit its status, with a stunning Golden Mist Poly finish in nitrocellulose lacquer, gold hardware, a 20th Anniversary medallion covering the rear control access cover, a custom-fitted dust cover with retro 1993 Gibson Custom logo, and a one-of-a-kind, hand-made, framed Certificate of Authenticity. It’s such a stunning collector’s piece we’re even including a pair of white gloves for careful handling. Only 100 will be available worldwide.
