GIBSON SG FIREBRAND DELUXE reviewed by Mark
I bought one in early 1981...an 80 model. It is my go to guitar; great neck, killer tone clean or dirty, nice frets. Mine has zebra pickup at the bridge for extra bite. I will part with mine when I die, and I have had many offers. If you can buy one, do it. You will not regret it.
