Not many people know this, but the Gibson Firebird was designed by a famous car designer Ray Dietrich and is modeled around a mid-50's car tailfin. Ted McCarty of Gibson needed a new approach to the futuristic-looking Flying-V and Explorer shapes and more than succeeded with the 'reverse jaguar', otherwise known as the Firebird.

 

"I am classic rock revisited. I revisit it every waking moment of my life because it has the spirit and the fire and the middle finger. I am Rosa Parks with a Gibson guitar" - Ted Nugent
