Firebird III


Recommended Posts

Gents / ladies


I have this ancient Firebird III which bought back in September 1973 from Orange Music in New Compton Street, London EC4 (aka Tin Pan Alley). The guitar was ex Mark Bolan.

Nothing special about the guitar, apart from the serial number, which is PP46.

I've tried, and failed, to find out anything at all about this serial number over the years. Gibson seem happy that the guitar is genuine, but don't seem to have any idea how the serial number came about.

I was wondering if any other guitars from the same period have had similar serial numbers?
