Craig Karr - 1964 Gibson ES-355 TDSV and 1963 Gibson Firebird V
Karr's two Gibsons are real rarities, with only 198 of the ES-355 made, and just 62 of the Firebird Vs in their respective years. Karr says the ES-355 is, "a killer through an AC30, Plexi, or Deluxe Reverb." He noted that the Firebird V is perfectly balanced with super fast action: "If you're trying to play like Johnny Winter, playing this one is your best shot."
