I've noticed there are quite a few around on this site, so let's see them altogether! Here's a little history first..... 20th Anniversary Les Paul Custom In 1974, Gibson celebrated 20 years since the first Les Paul Custom had appeared by issuing a Custom with a Twentieth Anniversary inlay at the 15th fret, in place of the normal blank position marker. This was Gibson's first anniversary model, and it proved to be very successful. It is clear that this guitar established a marketing trend for other anniversary models to follow. The 20th anniversary Les Paul Custom is typical of an early 70's Norlin model. It has a pancake (3 piece) body, gold hardware, volute, witch hat knobs, ABR-1 bridge, ebony fretboard, 3-piece mahogany neck, thin binding in the cutaway, 6 digit serial number, and "Made in USA" stamp on the back of the headstock. The 20th anniversary models were made in Kalamazoo. Here is mine. It was already heavily customised when I bought it over 20 years ago (I think I paid £350 or something similar). It has cream plastics (I guess, to go with DiMarzio Super Distortions it has); graphite nut. Hardware seems to be original, including waffle back tuners.
