Help Identifying a Gibson Firebird

Hey gang,

I bought this Gibson Firebird in Washington, D.C. about 15 years ago. I'm considering selling it as I have enough lying around. I have no idea, however, what it might be worth or which Firebird it is (I-IV?). Any help would be appreciated. Images are linked to here:

Very odd, it looks like a standard firebird V but has had its banjo tuners replaced with non standard ones, also the mini humbucker on the bridge has been swapped out for a full size humbucker, i dont think there was a special made with this combination, maybe it was modded?
If it were all original as a standard it would be worth £750-900 but modded it would be worth a bit less.

You know it very well may have been modified at some point as I bought it used. Thanks for the note! Much appreciated.

I would try reading Guitar Indentification or Vintage Guitar Guild 2012 the first has just Fender,Gibson and Gretsch while the second has everthing from a-z, almost everthing that is.
