The New SBS Guitars from GFS! Radical Looks for Cool Prices

Thumb 1

It’s the new SBS brand of guitars from GFS. Steve Brown Sound is the name here and that’s because this brand is the brain child of TRIXTER guitarist Steve Brown. Who else would be the prefect guy to bring an 80s shred guitar into the modern day. Featuring an alder body, roasted maple neck and fretboard, Floyd Rose bridge, super hot humbuckers with coil splitting, and looks that demand your attention and would be right at home in 1989… this is going to be the new, obvious choice for an affordable 80s shred guitar.
