Eric Clapton’s use of a Gibson Firebird I in the 1960s and 70s represents some of the most inspired, fiery, and influential playing of his legendary career. Though he had previously played a Les Paul, ES-335, and SG, it’s the 1964 Firebird I that Eric remembers as being truly outstanding.
"I remember one night in particular with the Firebird...it was a Cream show in Philadelphia and it was one of the greatest gigs I ever played.”
Gibson Custom Shop is proud to present this limited-edition reissue of Clapton’s famous Firebird, made using authentic construction methods and precise dimensions scanned from vintage 1964 Firebird models. Each is outfitted with a newly-developed Alnico V Firebird pickup to recapture the scorching output and searing tones of the original. And each features an Eric Clapton signed backplate, a replica of the strap he used, a replica of the guitar's original case, a Certificate of Authenticity booklet, and more.
