Firebird finishes


Recommended Posts



I'm thinking of buying myself a firebird, but the vintage sunburst finish confuses me. On Gibson's website (http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Firebird/Gibson-USA/Firebird-V/Finishes.aspx), the vsb is full of yellow and no red. Doesn't look at all like the old classic firebird sunburst, and web sites i've looked at (http://www.music123.com/Gibson-Firebird-V-Electric-Guitar-517338-i1149303.Music123), show the old sunburst color with lots of red and almost no yellow in it, although it's titled as vintage sunburst.

Here is mt Firebird V. Got it in 2008.

Just to give you an idea what the sunburst looks like in reality.

Go get one , I love mine for the tone, the neck and just for the fact that you don't

see them being played every day.
