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.
Very nice. I don’t see many of those around.
I just picked up a 79 The Paul recently after years of pining for my old one I let go back in the early 80s. They are great guitars. I love flat top Gibsons - my main guitar is a Junior. This one here is all original with T-tops. It's great to revisit it after 30 some years of playing. Congrats on your new old rock machine!
Grabbed an 84 around 2010 before I moved from NashVegas to the PNW.
Mine was cracked from a drop @ the control and jack cavity and reglued but no finish restore. It must have happened early in life and becam a case bandit. As he frets are like a new guitar, and the rest is in VGC head to the broken toe. But @ 325.00 with a new GC Hard case, I grabbed it not expecting to like it so much. After all I snobally scarfed at those when I had Customs when they came out. "That ain-t a real LP!!" ;O
I personally took the ceramic PUs out, because I had some mid/late 70 pulls from yet another 1979 Dimarzio SDHB install in my Custom way back then. I still have the orig ceramics from the 84 in the box the T-bobbins were in.
Love the 50s roundback neck profile...
