It Turned the Guitar World Upside Down - Literally!
Created by legendary automotive designer (and visionary) Ray Dietrich, the 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. You can bet heads turned when any guitar player took to the stage with one of these unusual instruments strapped on. Players like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter and Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) found their combination of looks and sound to be perfect for their needs (though, of course, Clapton played many Gibsons through the years).
Each AXE HEAVEN® miniature replica guitar is 1:4 scale and is individually handcrafted from solid wood, with metal tuning keys.
Each guitar model is approximately 10” in length and comes complete with a high-quality miniature adjustable A-frame stand and a gold foil stamped Gibson by AXE HEAVEN® guitar case gift box.
