Gibson Firebird III non-reverse (1965)

Hey guys,
I'm a boy from Germany. And I am in love with this guitar, but there's a problem. In Germany even the music shops don't know this guitar and I would like to have one. So, when you know somebody, who is selling one, please contact me.

My e-mail adress: S.Hirschmiller@gmx.de

Thank You

Gibson non-reverse firebird.

If I`m not mistaken didn`t Gibson start making the non-reverse in 63,I bought back in 1975 in New York City at a Father and Son store called We buy Guitars,only used guitars,the shop which was just filled with used guitars on thses cables and then each one was hooked on so they all hung down and not against a wall,I looked for about three min and low and behold there was this Rubyred gibson non-reverse firebird with three black 90s on them,gold volume and tone knobs on it.what a great sound,I had a little work done on the tune`o matic and bridge,it didn`t have a trem/bar on it,but when I got done securing the tune`o matic and adjusting the neck it was one hell of a guitar,of course at the time I didn`t know what I had!So I kept it in its case and played it when I wanted to play some blues,I really love that guitar,I bought it for two hundred dollers,still have it,why I am writing is to ask why there aren`t any pictures of these great Gibsons,I`d sure love to see them.I`m going to see if I can place a picture of my firebird on this sight,lets see some of these great guitars,condition doesn`t matter if you`re a non-reverse Gibson nut like myself,how about it,thanks David R.

Gibson Firebird III

Dear Roger,

When you were in London you repaired my Firebird (broken at headstock). I need two further repairs done (replace Antoria bridge with Gibson bridge and vibrola with fixed tail piece). Can you recommend someone acting on your behalf in London or the South East who could undertake this work to an invisible finish as good as yours?

All the best and hope to hear from you.

MICHAEL JACQUES
