This is 1965 Firebird III was made right before the model changed to the “non-reverse” design and features a transition headstock. The headstock has the standard sculpted design but yet has the non-reverse headstock orientation with the tuners on the top side. This guitar has been tastefully refinished to a natural mahogany, but features all original parts. The only other changes made were a refret and the lower volume pot was moved to the upper tone position, and it has all the bite and sparkle you could ask for! Comes with original hard case.
