    NGD: ‘73 Les Paul Custom

    Schweet Custom! Love that checking! Your tone description is very recognizable. Where did you buy the aged knobs? I'm looking for set of 80s speed knobs but hadn't considered aged new ones.

    1985 Les Paul Custom Truss Rod Question

    That knurled ring is most definitely not stock. The acorn nut looks stock. But if it was indeed used to put more tension on a maxed-out truss rod, I would expect the original washer to have depressed the wood fibers. The original washer seems to be in its normal place.

    Norlin LPC neck profile vs modern day

    I am restoring/reviving a 1950s Framus jazzbox with a big fat neck. Absolutely dreadful! I have already sanded it from a D into C and will most likely sand it down into a thinner C. God I love my slim-neck 81 Custom.

    Late 70’s to Early 80’’s Les Paul Custom with Factory Chrome Hardware

    @mudface, the tuners have the yellow tinge of nickel, not the blue tinge that chrome has. Or is it just the photo?

    1977 RD Standard wine red

    Hey thanks for the info. It seems these things are relatively unknown and unloved. Do you have the Les Trem Ii or the original version?

    1977 RD Standard wine red

    My 81 Custom was fitted with 300k volume, 100k tone too. Lineair, not audio taper.

    1977 RD Standard wine red

    OP - what's your opinion on the Les Trem? Tuning stability, build quality, 'feel'? I've been contemplating using one on my LP Custom.

    1982 Gibson Les Paul Spirit II - Cherry Burst

    Haven't seen of these before. Pretty cool! No volute... in 1982. That is a year before the volute was removed from Standards and Customs - correct? It's for sale in NL: € 2.950,00 https://link.marktplaats.nl/m1857736018

    Les Paul with thinner body, but not a lite

    If you want to keep it then please definitely negotiate a fair price. To me a fair price would be the sum of its hardware.

    Les Paul with thinner body, but not a lite

    Well that settles it for me. That guitar is not a custom order Gibson guitar. A few last remarks, Gibson started with Lite bodies in the mid-80s to late 80s. Also, the thin cutaway on OP's guitar doesn't match the thick binding used in the Norlin era.
