Overview

Gibson launched the Firebird design in 1963 with four main models: the Firebird I, II, V, and VII. Each was distinguished by different pickup and hardware configurations, though they all shared thru-body construction and a unique "reversed" body shape with a large lower horn.  By mid-1965, Gibson changed the Firebird (as well as its counterpart Thunderbird bass) to a more traditional "non-reversed" body shape.  In 1966 and 1967, Gibson issued a run of 12-string Firebird Vs. These featured two mini-humbuckers like the normal Firebird V, but had a fixed tailpiece instead of a vibrato.
