You are looking at a Gibson 2003 Firebird Prototype Electric Guitar (Used), serial number CS31735. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 4.3 oz.)

This one is clearly unique. In fact, according to Gibson, it’s the only one of its kind ever made. As Gibson firebird lovers already know, famed Chrysler car designer Ray Dietrich helped design the now legendary Gibson Firebird body style. We feel a strong sense of amusement in knowing that much like his famous cars, Dietrich’s guitar design has also been chopped and hot-rodded. The Lime Green Flake finish is flamed out with a paint that is slightly darker than Pelham Blue Flake. A thin stripe of orange separates and defines the two hot rod colors.

The chrome pick guard is fluted like you might find on a set of Edelbrock head covers. Full sized humbuckers add extra horsepower.
A futura headstock with raised Gibson logo replaces the more typical reverse banjo-keyed headstock. Topping off this beastie is a super fat neck that supports a scalloped ebony fingerboard. Yes, you read that correctly: Scalloped. Ebony.

More than any other show-stopping guitar we’ve seen, this instrument is the musical equivalent of a stars-and-stripes bikini: Display and play to the envy — or distain — of everyone that lays eyes on it. This is surely a love it or hate it guitar.

This particular guitar has changed hands a couple of times, but has been collector or dealer owned only, and has almost no play wear on it. There is a small surface check in the lacquer at the nut and another near the joint where the neck meets the body. These minor blemishes in no way spoil the look or performance of the guitar.

Includes original black Gibson Custom Art and Historic hardshell case.
