Gibson Firebird 5

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"This is a three owner Firebird that was purchased from the second owner in 1981 and has not been on the market for 30 years.

It's a killer guitar and a Johnny Winter special that's 100% original with no breaks, no changed parts and is in excellent condition!

The serial number is - # 169XXX.

This Firebird has all its original nickle hardware.

Firebirds from 64-65 have chrome hardware and only the 63 and early 64's have the nickle hardware,

which looks cooler and is much rarer.

The original pickguard has shrunk (as they all do and I would be suspect if it wasn't ) with a very small piece

that cracked off at the end closest to the controls directly under the tremolo arm."
