There have been few guitarists able to interpret classic blues and blues rock with the mastery and expressiveness of legend Johnny Winter. Since the late 1960s, Winter has been cranking out some of the meanest and most spellbinding slide guitar ever recorded, and performing live, he can still blast searing, gut-wrenching blues without even breaking a sweat.

For decades, Winter has relied on one guitar–a 1963 Gibson Firebird V. The Gibson Custom Shop Johnny Winter Signature Firebird V is a painstaking re-creation of this iconic electric guitar down to every last detail and feature. Nothing has been overlooked on the Gibson Firebird.

Only 125 of these guitars were roduced for worldwide distribution, this example is #003/125
