When it was introduced in 1963, the Gibson Firebird was so ahead of its time that few people wanted one, leading to its discontinuation in 1965. Lucky for guitarists everywhere, once rock ‘n’ roll style caught up to this guitar, the Firebird was brought back.
Now, 50 years later, Gibson is celebrating this once-radical guitar with a 50th Anniversary model. This commemorative axe is pimped out with a Bullion Gold nitrocellulose finish, gold hardware, and a black pickguard hot-stamped in gold with “50th Anniversary 1963-2013” and the traditional Firebird phoenix, and now you have a chance to win one from Premier Guitar.Enter Here
