TL:DR All original 1980 firebird in natural finish. Untouched electronics and one owner.

Super clean firebird with all original parts and electronics. Pickups sound amazing like fender/gibson had a child. Neck starts off not too chunky (0.82") but fills out really nice at the 12th (0.99"). The neck through design is beautiful and the mahogany grain is really nice on this one. The finish still has its original sheen and the frets are polished and play like butter. Original frets still have life left ~0.035" and The original nut is in great condition. Thanks

This piece has been fully setup with our "Gilded Treatment." This means instrument has been fully inspected, professionally photographed and documented along will a full deep cleaning of any residual grime and dust, pots are cleaned of debris and sprayed with contact cleaner to add a layer of cleaning and protection. Its amazing how clean pots and contacts bring so much tone back. Polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Dialed Nut Height with optimal slots and contact points with lubrication. Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes. Thank you for looking

 You'll be shocked to find how good our pro setup is! A 100$ value free! big bends fretting out is a thing of the past, find out for yourself!

Condition: Excellent Condition aside from one tiny little scratch on bottom edge of the body and slight discoloration on the top of the peghead.

Electronics: All Original and untouched electronics. Pat. No pickups and pots that date to the 35th week of 1979.
