Description

Eric Clapton has played some pretty special guitars during his long and distinguished career, but there is one that he remembers as being truly outstanding - the 1964 Gibson Firebird I. Frequently utilised during the '60s and '70s, it was representative of some of Clapton's most ferocious and inspiring playing one performance especially standing out with Eric stating "I remember one night in particular with the Firebird...it was a Cream show in Philadelphia and it was one of the greatest gigs I ever played."

In honour of this incredible guitar, Gibson Custom are releasing 100 meticulously crafted reissues. This has to be the only one left for sale in the world!

The Mahogany body is finished in an authentic Vintage Sunburst with White pickguard for a true '60s appeal. It's resonant and nicely balanced too, despite its larger offset body. Crafted using time tested construction techniques and precise dimensions scanned from original '64 Firebirds, this guitar offers true vintage tonality.

The 9-ply Mahogany/Walnut neck benefits from 22, a 24.75" scale length, 64 medium C neck profile and a killer Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Super stable and supremely comfortable this is a real player's guitar. Also boasting a standard reverse six-in-a-line headstock with Deluxe Banjo tuners, it feels both authentically vintage and reliably modern.

Loaded with a single Firebird Alnico V Mini Humbucker pickup, the Eric Clapton '64 Gibson Firebird I delivers tone by the bucket load. With a really unique sonic character it is versatile, dynamic and offers crystal clear note definition.

Housed in a replica of the original Gibson hardshell case and with a signed Clapton backplate, replica strap and COA, it's certainly a worthy addition to the long line of iconic Firebirds!
