Gibson Firebrand Les Paul and Silvertone amp in Dallas for $450 (Reduced)

Update 4/18/11: The Seller reposted this ad and lowered the price to only $450 for the Pair. - JC

**************************************

This looks to be a very nice deal for readers in the Dallas area (seller says he will not ship or sell to a non-local buyer). Not only do you get a nice Gibson "Firebrand" Les Paul from the late 1970's-early 80's but he is throwing in a Silvertone SS bass amp that includes a separate cab with a 15" Cerwin Vega. Maybe not a great guitar rig but your Bass Player will thank you for it. CV speakers will definitely bring down the house.

The Firebrand gets a funky rap because it doesn't really look or sound like a Les Paul Standard or Custom - but so what? Think of it more as an SG. It's a solid Walnut body much thinner than a Les Paul and made in USA with a set neck and a pair of late 70's style Alnico Humbucking Pickups(PAF style). it's a great guitar.

80's Gibson LP Firebrand-good cosmetic shape, EXCELLENT playability. Low action, sounds great (it is a Les Paul!). In other words it has a fantastic set up. I have had this guitar for 17 years and it is now time for someone else to enjoy it. Comes with what looks and feels like is a wool lined case.

With it comes a vintage Silvertone 35W Bass amp. The head fits in the lower part of cab to haul around. The speaker is a 15" Cerwin Vega 100W. I have used my Mesa head on this cab, it can take it.

This would be a great beginner/intermmidiate package for one serious about playing/learning to play. Not bigger turn-off than a hard to play guitar.


Feel free to come and take it for a test flight, no effects will be included.

Only respond if you can come see/pick it up. I will not ship this nor reply to someone buying it without seeing it. It must go to a good home.
