1983 Gibson Corvus III
1983 Gibson Corvus III From 1982-84, Gibson produced this oddly shaped guitar, which from the front looked like a can opener and from the side, looked like a crow in flight. The latter comparison was intentional (?Corvus? is actually Latin for ?crow?). The former comparison? Not so intentional. ?The body shape of the Corvus resembles a battle-ax,? Carter says. ?This is one of the goofiest of all Gibson models, and its rarity is well-deserved. Production totals are unavailable.? Three versions of the guitar emerged in the early ?80s: Corvus I, Corvus II and Corvus III, with the numerical notation representative of the number of pickups. Over the years, this guitar has fallen into the so-ugly-it?s-cool category amongst some collectors. Its appearance in the Guitar Hero video game series has renewed interest in them of late.
