Fired Up Since ’63

When Gibson hired famed automotive designer Ray Dietrich to create a radical new solid body guitar, Rock ‘n Roll history ensued. With its offset shape, neck-through construction and scorching mini-humbuckers, the ’63 Firebird V became an instant classic. Custom Shop is proud to present this exacting replica of a vintage original, which uses authentic contours, dimensions and construction methods for an incredible ownership and playing experience.
