1965 Orig Gibson Firebird III Inverness Green Custom Color
This came from front man and guitar player of Material Issue , Jim Ellison
Great Vintage Rare Custom Color Gibson here folks!
1965 Inverness Green Poly in Color*... I have pics next to blue strap etc to show it is Green in color. Not Blue.. Hard color to film
Ser # 327300 hard to film, as Gibson painted over the in pressed number.. But you can read it
In 2014 Vintage price guide this color is $11,000 low 14k High..
No Bull.. I love this guitar.. It is just different than any other I own.. The Tremolo works and it stays in Tune.. neat!
This does not have a painted headstock like "Most" Custom Color Gibson did.. I like that.. It looks way better in my book*
No breaks ever. anywhere. Has some weather checking but very minor
Neck angle is perfect, and it set up very Nice!
Only made from 1963-1969
Solid Mahogany Body and Neck
1- Piece Neck with Long Tenon
This one came with the Quality Double Line Klusons.. All Metal.. Most have the cheap white tips
This has the earlier toggle switch with cap for selection of pickups.. After they went to a cheap (never works right) slider switch
All original but the pots.. 3 are correct 1973 500k Gibson, 1 is a WD (USA) 500k. Im not positive 3 are even 1973, you can see the dates because of solder. For 100% I know 1 pots is a WD. Go from there. 2014 value on these are 11k low, 14k high in this color. Heck with all that, find another 1965 in this Custom Color at ANY Price to buy... I can't find not even 1.. Making is a Rare as Heck find.. Period.!
The knobs are not original but NOS 1970's Gibson ones I had.. The Case I don't know if orig.. It is in solid shape and no smells.....
In this sale you get the Guitar,Case, guitar pics and the Gibson strings.. I have other items in pictures to get you in the Vintage MOOD!:)
This is a GREAT Axe, you Will Dig. You will not be disappointed! The 3-P 90s scream, and Tones All Day with Vol up or turned down, same with Tone Pots. You can get 60's Classic All Day...
