Product Details

Description

An often overlooked classic from the cusp of a difficult period for Gibson, the Les Paul Deluxe’s combination of mahogany body and twin mini humbuckers augmented the sonic palette of this classic instrument becoming the touchstone for 70’s tones of bands such as The Who and Thin Lizzy.

It's not often that these guitars escape some sort of modification or another as misguided owners try to ‘upgrade’ them. This example just oozes mojo. The tobacco burst looks great and has survived remarkably well. The back of the 2 piece ‘pancake’ body shows some sign of use with some buckle rash evident.

The pickguard has been changed for a repro one, the jack plate has been changed and so has the switch tip to a repro amber one.

The three piece mahogany neck (soon to be changed to maple in 1975) shows very little signs of wear. The fretboard is in great shape as are the frets with plenty of life left in them. The headstock, in the same way as the body, has a few marks. 

Electronically everything looks correct with pots dated at week 52 of 1974. 

The guitar comes with a hardshell case.

The unamplified tone has plenty of sustain, as you’d expect from a good Gibson. The mini humbuckers bring a brightness without being as muddy as could be the case with full size humbuckers of the same period.

A stunning guitar that looks and sounds the part. Grab it before it get away…
