Firebird Kit

R2,650.00

EG FB 10


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.
