    NGD: '21 Epi Firebird!

    Been wanting to grab one but waiting for a used one to pop up. GC had one $380 shipped and mint! Glad i bought it. Fit finish is excellent. Pickups are far better then the high output ceremic minihums my 2016/2018 Gibsons i had. Neck is a bit chunkier then them also (a huge plus!) Cant put it...
