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.
