    Congratulations , fantastic guitar . It looks brand new.

    I had several LSLP .....the way you describe the tone is right on. Especially the comparison to the 70's . The sound is more like the 50's tones than the 70's .

    I'd be paranoid about dinging or marking that guitar . It's a museum piece.

    The finish seems much thinner than on latte Gibsons . I ve rubbed though the finish on the back body edges of my 68 GT. Just where the back of he guitar rests against my body . Not scratches , Just th slight movement against my clothes has slowly worn the clear coat. It kills me not to play it.

    You ll double your money one day or more. That's super rare in that shape.

    Thanks to all. :)

    And yes, i am very careful with this guitar, i must get to be accustomed to this. I am playing her a lot, the tone is amazing and i think this guitar will be despite her condition my number 1.

    And exactly, the finish is thinner than on 70s Les Pauls.

    No, this one is much better sounding than the sold 71. Actually this is most probably the best Les Paul i ever owned tonewise. I have finally found "the one". :)

    You are now smitten by the vintage woodie tone.

    Your friends will have a hard time putting your guitar down,

    There is no going back at this point ....


    It's the type of guitar .....if you leave it out .....you will be unable to resist picking it up .

    Kinda of a curse . :fingersx:

    Cases were optional back then, I believe. If he couldn't afford one at the time, he probably got the cheaper one later.

    Yes, it does. :)

    29th week of 69 pots.

    Three piece neck, non-pancake body. Still nicely contoured top, thin finish and nylon saddles on ABR bridge. 500k audio taper pots and black Sprague caps.

    Fairly big 59 like tapered neck profile and extremely clean and articulate sounding guitar, with tons of overtones. Weight is 4.45 kg.
