http://www.frettedamericana.com/gibso... of just 272 of the first year Firebird lll model, this guitar weighs just 8.00 lbs. and has a nice, fat nut width of just over 1 11/16 inches and a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches. Solid mahogany body, mahogany, neck, and bound rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. Headstock with gold-painted "Gibson" logo on black plastic truss-rod cover. Individual Gibson Banjo-style tuners with rearwards metal tulip-shaped buttons. Two "patent number" mini-humbuckers with outputs of 6.57k and 6.72k. Earliest style three-layer (white/black/white) plastic pickguard (without "Firebird" emblem). Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch. Gold plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops. Combination bar bridge/tailpiece with pre-set ridges and factory Gibson short Vibrola tailpiece with flat arm. All parts nickel-plated. The pots are dated "137 63 43" (CTS Oct 1963). This is one of the very earliest examples with a two-piece full length neck and a convex heel which blends into the body. Also there is no 'Firebird' emblem on the three-layer plastic pickguard. Housed in the original Gibson black hardshell case with yellow plush lining (8.75).
