2003 Gibson Firebird V, Vintage Sunburst, with OHSC and Upgrades
Vintage Sunburst finish and made in USA, this guitar features nine-ply mahogany and walnut neck-through construction with mahogany wings. The neck has a `60s slim taper, and a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. 2003 was the last year that Gibson USA used the traditional ABR-1 bridge and studs on this model, before they transitioned to the Nashville bridge system. This guitar has been upgraded with a Faber stop-tailpiece and studs; the originals are included in the case. It also has been upgraded with Mojotone Johnny Winter Signature Firebird mini-humbucking pickups with Alnico V magnets and potted, and a Jackson Luthier custom wiring harness with Bourns 550k audio taper pots and Sprague Vitamin Q PIO .022 capacitors. It is in very good condition, with a number of scratches and dings, and some finish chips. It comes with the original Gibson hard case with hot pink plush and pink shroud.
