Duane Allman’s 1963 Gibson Firebird

According to Duane Betts, Duane acquired this guitar from Wilson Pickett’s guitar player. [Duane Betts, Facebook]

The guitar was also recently featured in a video by the Songbirds Foundation (below), but not much of the history behind it was disclosed, aside from that it was purchased around the time that Duane worked on Wilson Pickett’s “Hey Jude” album at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals (November 1968). If you happen to have any more information about the Firebird, be sure to either leave a comment below or get in touch via email.
