Rock deity Eric Clapton, in collaboration with Gibson, have given us give us the 1964 Firebird I Reissue. Clapton’s 1964 original made its iconic appearance at Cream’s famous last show on November 26 1968. He has always considered the Gibson Firebird special, recalling that “It was a Cream show in Philadelphia [featuring the Firebird] and it was one of the greatest gigs I ever played.”
This reissue limited run of only 100. 50 of which will be available exclusively through Guitar Centre and the other half through selected Gibson dealers. Consequently, this firey fowl will be coming in hot when it launches in time with this year’s Crossroads Guitar Festival.
Relive a slice of history with the Eric Clapton Firebird Reissue. A sure-fire favourite to feature at the Crossroads Guitar Festival this September.
The Custom Shop model is fitted with a single Alnico V Firebird pickup and authentically constructed using methods scanned from vintage 1694 Firebirds. Features include a C-profile neck, a Lightning Bar wraparound bridge, and stylish Deluxe Banjo tuners.
The vintage sunburst finish and rosewood fingerboard make it as though you’re playing onstage alongside Cream themselves. A replica Slowhand’s album strap and signed backplate are some of the juicy extras you’ll find inside the custom case.
