Gibson Firebrand 335 S Standard
Trs rare manufactures in the USA under the direction Norlin, this guitar dcline silent in many shapes, Les Paul, SG and 335. Only changed the form of electronic silent on all the same. Two dirty fingers, a well located selector bottom right, bottom (to make ECONOMY perage wire and a hole in supplmentaire left as the other Les Paul or SG non-economic .

UTILIZATION

The handle is the highway of heaven, the frets are wide and flat enough that the little rubber finger placement errors. The double notches with a set neck allows a CASC easy to treble. Form 335, it has widened the rear body, allowing it to push the shape of your chest, or your gut depending on where you place it to play. As is lighter than a Les Paul, less than 335 Paisse ES, it is idalie for scne. The dirty fingers as they are excellent for playing Led Zep. You hit twice agreement MI enchantment and you riff on the Good Time Bad Time, all the hairs stand up on the forearm so the sound is excellent, even better than on disk.

SOUNDS

As the microphones are powerful It is not necessary to always use donf. The sound is even better, I play this guitar on a Marshall 8080 for Stairway to Heaven, the sound is fabulous when GRNE clear agreements and when necessary to pass the game LA SOL FA is mounted volume of 7 10 and not need pedals sound is l.
I also use it as a jazz guitar, with only one serious micro VOX AC 30, it's hot and beautiful. I dj duo on a jou TWIN REVERB with collgue who had a LES PAUL STANDARD, he silent impossible to know what his guitar playing so the resemblance between the two is perfect.
I never use the microphone only acute, mostly intermdiaire is in position I play.
Can not play with this SYKES John skyscrapers, but the cons for LED ZEP ZZ Top or ..... is the top.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this guitar in a store that she kept her silent activity FRS 5000 I got 50% or 2500 FRS is one of the best investment of my life. Sounds fabulous setting for a relatively small, has had two months of rent when the era (instead of 4). I have many other guitars, FENDER: Lead, Stratocaster, Gibson, Les Paul, Corvus, Challenger, Victory. All these guitars have spcificits particulires. But the one I prfre among all is the 335 S, Premire in form, less than the form Galvaude LES PAUL, and its his character that has a rel re.
For me it's the guitar that every guitar player should have in its range, not too CHRE, handy, good sound.

Gibson Firebrand 335 S Standard
Made in the USA, in May 1980. Form ES 335 for more Troit solid body.
Channel 22 frets, two humbuckers "Dirty Fingers" zbrs.
Tune-o-Matic
Two volume and two tone + a slecteur 3 positions.
Channel super easy, type SG.

UTILIZATION

Yeah the neck is enjoyable and Access in acute is easy, despite the form ES335 but I have huge hands and long fingers trs.
The guitar is heavy as a SG.
This gives a good sound not easy: the pickups "Dirty Fingers" are aptly named! Configuring the coolest in the center position is obtained, the two together, so. There is an acute lack of perptuel bridge neck as a standard bump in mdiums and bass.
Any amp will be asked to be hacked for a while before going out good sound.
on the other hand, in terms of power, there are spare. The distos the Santana are a breeze. Hot, hot, hot.

SOUNDS

The sound trs agree well with rock and blues and the Młoda Santana as I say above, but the lack of treble and bass excs rotate the sauce. Over the years, I learned whatever you do, push the treble and bass mdiums + decrease.
I played on many amps: Carvin triple body, Marshall plexi, Hugues & Kettner Peavey mixed and full transistors.
The best sound possible is the crunch and the high distortion mlodique solo trs feeding. T he will but it's a little bit. The distortion in agreements, even just coughing, drooling is still too serious or vomissante.

OVERALL OPINION

As I never had a lot of bl was 25 years since I played and it is true that like good wine: things imperceptible at first were amliores. It may be used to but the sound was a little amlior. A lgre appears smooth and it seems that with the aging of the magnets, it has lost some of its brutal ct vomiting but his is far from having had disappeared. Always tinkering and tweaking the SETTING THE amp.
Ct is his best in blues rhythmic crunch and then a 25 years together and there may still be an aspect setimental.
With exprience, I would do not have that choice. It would be impossible since they have produced only 80 and 81. J'tais young and I flash the name Gibson.
