The Firebird was the first guitar made at the the legendary Kalamazoo factory to use neck-through construction and was part of a series of unique instruments drawn up by car designer Ray Dietrich. Ray was commissioned by Gibson’s Ted McCarty to create new and radical designs for Kalamazoo-made electric guitars. Dietrich's designs included the Flying V and the Explorer. Many in the industry were skeptical when these futuristic looking instruments were first released. The angular Firebird didn’t look like any guitar on the market when it was debuted in 1963. But now, the Firebird has become a staple axe of rock and roll guitarists and a wide range of artists including Keith Richards and Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, Stephen Stills, and Tom Petty have made the Firebird a hit maker.
