The 12-string electric guitar has been a mainstay of popular music since the mid-1960s when it was embraced by bands like the Beatles and the Byrds. Gibson’s iconic EDS-1275’s appeal has led to its use on many classic recordings and arena concert stages, but for those who prefer a lighter 12-string electric guitar with a single neck configuration, Gibson Custom is proud to introduce the 1965 Non-Reverse Firebird V 12-String Reissue. This recreation of the highly collectible model from 1965 remains faithful to the guitar that inspired it, with one key improvement – a full 1 11/16” neck width instead of the narrower neck found on the original. Gibson also returned to the classic 1959 Oldsmobile colour chart that has been the source of some of the historic Gibson custom colours for the beautiful Aqua Mist VOS finish. Equipped with a pair of Firebird pickups with Alnico 5 magnets, it delivers all the sparkle, jangle, and chime you need in a well-balanced, highly playable, vintage-inspired electric 12-string.
