Brand new Epiphone 1963 Firebird V Maestro Vibrola Ember Red

1963 Firebird V Made in Collaboration With the Gibson Custom Shop
Epiphone and the Gibson Custom Shop have teamed up again to create the Inspired by Gibson Custom

1963 Firebird V – an authentic replica of the guitar designed by legendary automotive designer Ray
Dietrich. When it was launched in 1963, the Firebird™ was Gibson’s first neck-through-body model, and it
went on to be used by players in a wide range of genres, including blues legend Johnny Winter, Keith
Richards and Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, to
name a few.
The Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Custom 1963 Firebird V delivers vintage Firebird specifications at an
accessible price, including a 9-ply neck-through-body made of mahogany and walnut with mahogany
body wings to either side. Kluson® planetary geared “banjo” tuners anchor the strings at the headstock,
while an Epiphone ABR bridge and newly redesigned Maestro™ Vibrola™ with an engraved Epiphone
logo hold things down at the other end. The electronics are also premium and include Gibson USA
Firebird mini humbucker™ pickups with Alnico 5 magnets, CTS® potentiometers, Mallory™ capacitors,
and a Switchcraft® 3-way pickup selector toggle switch and 1/4” output jack, giving this remarkable
recreation not only the look but also the sound of a classic Firebird V. An Epiphone Inspired by Gibson
Custom hardshell case is also included.
