    Very nice! I remember various models of this generation, think I could get on well with one.

    Nice! If I'm remembering my early 80s Gibson history correctly the "Firebrand Deluxe" kind of replaced the original "The Paul" plus it added the gloss finish. I think the timeline was The Paul/The SG came out in '78, the Firebrands came out as a slightly less expensive version in late '79/early '80, then they revamped the series with the other models in 1981 (and added that solid body 335 S model at about that time).

    Also I believe the Deluxe could be had in other finishes - I recall seeing a silverburst 335 S Firebrand Deluxe some time in '81 or '82.

    So many nice guitars here. I had a Firebrand LP years ago that someone had painted red and put Harley Davidson decals on. I took the paint off of it and applied a lot of lemon oil and it looked nice. I love the natural look. The wood does the talking. Great pictures above.
