Johnny Winter's 1963 Sunburst Firebird is one of the most recognizable guitars in the blues and rock and roll. It was played by Johnny on the Muddy Waters Grammy award-winning albums, which he also produced: "Hard Again" (1977), "Ready" (1978), and "Mississippi Waters Live," (1979). It was used for most of Johnny Winter's own recordings and many of his slide-guitar tunes, right up until his death. Winter played it on the David Letterman show in 2012.

Sunburst finish. Shows many signs of wear and use, including: slightly faded Firebird logo on pick guard, metal shows signs of oxidization, missing tailpiece, paint chipping along both sides of body and verso of fretboard. 3/4" crack at the bottom of front of body.
