Centennial Firebird VII from 1994 in a limited run of 100 pieces to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Gibson. Diamond inlay & gold plated hardware
To commemorate their 100th Anniversary, in 1994 Gibson issued a Limited Edition Centennial line of electric guitars. During the course of a year, Gibson issued a special model each month, and in a limited run of 100 instruments per model. This one of a hundred Limited Centennial Firebird VII in Vintage Sunburst was issued in September 1994. This guitar has serial number #1949 (serials ranging from 1894 'till 1994).
This guitar is simply amazing to look at, and is also really versatile. Even Strat-like tones can be achieved. This Firebird has 11 real diamond inlays (tone/volume knobs, stop tailpiece with the serial number, and the dot in the i in the Gibson gold plated nameplate on the headstock). These diamons alone already value at a surprising $3000. 22 Karat Anniversary Orville Gibson coin at the back of the headstock.
Each 1994 Limited Centennial model retailed at the time for $10.000. A true Collector's Guitar!
