'68 FIREBIRD I, No reverse, Sunburst, Vibrola, 2 p90,only 192 made, EX code GI025

Sunburst on non reverse mahogany body, a nice clean unbroken example, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, two great sounding soapbar P-90 pickups

Mahogany set-neck construction with unbound rosewood fingerboard. Mother of pearl dot markers,medium frets very playable,Mahogany offset design body. Comfort contour on the back.Tobacco sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish.Two P-90 pickups, pickup selector, individual volume and tone contols. Ridged stop bar bridge, short Vibrola unit. This guitar plays very well, clean and comfortable. The neck isn’t skinny, but it isn’t chunky either, and overall the design is well balanced in terms of appearance and weight distribution.Gibson started producing the Firebird in 1963 (as the ‘reverse’ models), but by 1965 sales weren’t being made and Fender was suing for copyright infringement, so the guitar was basically flipped, producing these ‘non-reverse’ models, and these were produced until 1969 when the line was discontinued. The Reverse models used a neck-though design, while the non-reverse feature a set-in neck.This Firebird I has two P-90′s and a factory stop-bar-and vibrola combination. The vibrola itself works quite well; these units are really nothing like the Stratocaster bridge, but are much more like a Bigsby in terms of pitch change.
