Johnny Winter 1964 Firebird V

A Blues-Rock Master's Legendary Firebird

Gibson Custom


Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.

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 based on 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 five-piece 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.

As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
