    Its real, they made a few, and in the day no one really wanted one. I'm not sure a whole lot of people want one now.

    The guitar posted by the OP is a LP Personal model, not a Recording model.

    and even less people that want them.....if you do want one, the recording is the way to go.

    Ibanez made a copy of the LP Recording. looks just like it. These were low impedence guitars meant to plug into a console.
    I have a friend with the Gibson Recording Bass. Has played it for a long time. Try finding one of those. Sounds good but not great.

    I had a bandmate in a classic-rock cover group back in the 90s who had one.

    Nice guitars, not my cup of tea tonally, in that it didn't seem to have its own voice. He could get close to a lot of different sounds, which worked for us as our setlist had everything from early Beatles to Bad Company to Cracker's "Low". Ron sure got a lot of mileage out of it.
