The Gibson Les Paul Deluxe was introduced in 1969 along side other Les Paul models that marked a return to the '50s style single cutaway body shape. This 1977 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe is a great example of a later period Les Paul Deluxe in exceptional condition.
This guitar features a solid Mahogany body as opposed to the pancake design seen earlier in the '70s, along with the Maple neck design introduced in 1975. The tuners are the original Schaller made floral engraved tuners. The original mini humbuckers offer a clarity and dynamic range that sets the apart from both humbuckers and single coils, offering a unique range of tones. The wiring and pots are original and fully functional, along with the bridge and tailpiece and control knobs.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with no repairs or replacement parts to speak of. It is a factory natural finish, and shows small signs of play wear and patina, mostly concentrated to the rear of the body. As with all our vintage instruments, this guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by the luthier at the Vintage Instrument Workshop and is guaranteed for 3 years in line with our vintage instrument warranty.
