Woodstock Guitars

One of the most notable proponents of the Gibson Firebird, blues-rock legend Johnny Winter, was well known for his love of the design. This 1964 Firebird V is a replica of one of Johnny’s most well-known Firebirds.

The specs reveal an astonishing level of detail and accuracy, from the plugged holes from the removed Maestro™ Vibrola™ to the faded Firebird logo on the pickguard, right down to the missing reflector on the rhythm tone knob.

It also features a 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck-through-body with mahogany wings, a bound Indian rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays, two Alnico 5 Firebird pickups, classic “banjo” tuners, and a Murphy Lab custom-aged Polaris White finish.

This particular guitar is number 123 out of 125 made, and is brand new.
