Everybody flips for the Non-Reverse Firebird V reissue.

Gibson’s second spin on it’s offset body design, the ’65 Non-Reverse Firebird V, created a whole new legend. Flipping the orientation of both the body and the neck, created a new look that players loved. And the AlNiCo V pickups had a bite and punch for a uniquely charming and subtly different voice. This reissue, from Gibson Custom, recreates the original body profiles and construction methods for an instrument that fully captures the looks, feel and sound of the original.

This '65 Non-Reverse Firebird V includes deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
