Matt Smith’s setup might appear frail, but his disheveled ’82 SG and a half-powered JCM800 ignites a powder keg of melodic hardcore.

Matt’s other SG is a 1981 Firebrand Deluxe model that was a result of a trade he made with former bandmate and Strike Anywhere guitarist Matt Sherwood. Smith gave up his ’80s Orville by Gibson Les Paul for the above SG Firebrand. (Orville by Gibson was a brand of guitars that were managed by Gibson, but made and sold in Japan to counteract the “lawsuit-era” copies that were made by Greco, Ibanez, Tōkai, and Burny. The brand went defunct in 1998.)
