    This is a pre Norlin era 1969 Les Paul Deluxe with one piece back and three piece neck. This guitar has amazing lacquer checking but it's a little difficult to capture in photo. In excellent condition for the year, she's almost 50 years old. I have had many compliments on how the checking looks like a flame top. Original pots are dated to 31st week of 1969.....1376931, and they sound great, no scratching or poping. Gibson serial number is 85056X, she has a nice weight just over nine pounds. It has beautiful vintage tone for days and fantastic harmonics, nice straight neck, plays great with plenty of life on the frets. This guitar eats R9's for lunch. Comes with a postcard from Gibson in Kalamazoo postmarked 18 July 1978 confirming the guitar was built in 1969. She has been kept in her case in a smoke free studio room. Hoping someone from our forum will snag this up as it has been owned by a few of our members. You will NOT be disappointed. Asking $6,000 OBO plus actual shipping. Will ship with what appears to be the original case, not interested in trades at this time...Thank you.

    I'm not a big fan of goldies, but that sure is sweet!

    Wow, must be really one of the first Deluxes made in mid to late 69 still with many 68/69 specs. Very cool. :dude:
