    Hey guys-

    Up for sale is a 1972 Gibson Firebird Medallion.
    These guitars are incredible and live up to all the hype.
    These were built to spec and are a great alternative to the $16-17K originals.
    This babe has ZERO CRACKS ,BREAKS OR REPAIRS and comes housed in its original hard case with medallion emblem under the handle.
    The neck is just perfect in my opinion , really nice shoulders.
    The mini-humbuckers will do whatever you want as well , from bell tone clean to down and dirty with just a roll of the volume knob.
    The original pick guard had shrunk quite a bit so I had Chris Mirabella make a new one for me out of NOS Gibson '64 materials. Chris is the one who makes the Custom Shop and Historic guards for Gibson , so the guard is spot on.
    Original guard is in the case.
    I really like using Nylon saddles on certain P-90 & Mini-humbucker equipped guitars and as you can tell I have nylons on this. The original saddles are in the case as well.

    This one is killer yall , drop a line if interested. Thanks for looking :dude:

    Dropping the price this one time -
    $5000 plus shipping

    I had #259, I wish I could find it again, but it would cost me a whole lot more than I had to sell it for... DSC00506.JPG
