    Wanted - Norlin era LP Custom in Black or Natural

    Hello guys, long time no see! Having recently moved out of front-line music retail, I have re-ignited my passion for guitars. I previously owned a 74 LP Custom, which I sold along the way, but I want another. So...... what have you got?

    1969-1970 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, End of the "Vintage Era"? NEW VIDEO!

    As we know, early in 1961 the single cutaway Les Paul was discontinued due to lack of sales. In summer 1968 it was reintroduced by popular demand. The first Les Pauls produced in 1968 were almost similar to those of the Ted McCarty era. In fact the 1968 Les Pauls predate the less desirable...

    Gibson Les Paul "T-Top's"

    Hello guys! ;) So i'm in need of your help please, i can't decide. I'm planning on getting my 80's Les Paul Standard back to stock. The previous owner apparently managed to put some Seymour Duncan's Pickup on it, so i'm actually looking for a pair of 80's T-tops. (Which it is quiet hard to...

    Gibson Serial Number Ledgers and Red Bobbins on LP Deluxe?

    Hi, I was wondering if there are any ledgers with serial numbers from '73-'74? I know I saw some with totals of Les Pauls shipped in what colors, but is there any further record on a Les Paul in the norlin era pertaining to the serial number? Such as a custom order? I have a '73 Deluxe with a...

    NGD - 1980 Custom Silverburst

    Well I finally joined the Norlin club. Been looking for a little while and found one that I'm happy to call mine. She weight's in right at 10 pounds and just sounds great. If you look closely at the last pic in the neck pickup cavity you can make out "Maralyn" (I'm guessing one of the QC...

    NGD: 1980 Les Paul Pro (Ebony)

    I picked this up about a month ago, but since I'm new here, I'm sharing it as a NGD. This is a 1980 Les Paul Pro (Deluxe) with original case and warranty card. I love finding that kind of stuff in the case pocket. It is an original owner guitar in really clean condition. I'm digging the P90...

    NGD: 1977 Gibson Les Paul Pro

    Hey y'all! I got a special one here. I've been itching for a Les Paul with P90's. I was leaning on either getting a Junior or a Special; funny how I ended up not choosing either of them. The moment I stumbled upon this beauty, I knew that I had to have it. I've always gravitated toward the...

    Got me a new Black Custom

    Acquired this new one earlier in the week, as I understand it, it is a '77 and in relatively decent condition for its age. Feels like a good solid instrument and hopefully, it will stick around with me for a while.

    Sold Please Delete

    Hey all, I am posting a 1974 LP Custom that has been gigged, modified and really played. The guitar comes in at about 9.5 pounds, has a nice medium profile neck (not too slim, not too thick) and has had a vintage B7 Bigsby installed about 30 years ago. The guitar also has a pair of TV Jones...

    NGD! 1973 Les Paul Custom

    *I had this posted under vintage, moved it to here* Hey everyone, I'm really excited because I just bought my first Les Paul Custom, a 1973 black beauty stripped to natural. It plays like nothing else I've ever tried and it looks great, as the center piece of maple on the top has some quilt in...

    Bought a Norlin today that is a little different from most that I find..... A big shout to @TheX for answering some questions for me prior to the sale...his knowledge of nylon stringed classical instruments proved invaluable to me. 1982 Chet Atkins CE....1.8” neck really feels good, I was...

    Old SG?

    Recently found this SG for sale locally, and the owner claims it is a '69! It doesn't look right to me. I thought I've seen these block inlays on a Norlin-era instument. I'm waiting to get details of the back of the headstock to verify. Any insights?

    77 Lefty Maple on Maple (WiW?)

    I bought this for $1,200.00 no tax in Berlin, N.H. At what used to be Catello & Son Music. The current shop owner stands by it being a 76 custom, but it’s seirial starts with an 06. I’ve read that those are the 77 makes. Could I be mistaken? Everything seems original.. Tim Shaw humbuckers, down...

    Best strap for heavy Norlin LP Customs

    Hello folks, I've been playing my LPC (11#) out more often, and what didn't bother me at 20 bothers the hell out of my shoulder at 47. Wondering if any other Norlin owners with boat anchors have a preferred strap to distribute the weight better and make this beast more comfortable to play for...

    NGD: 1977 Explorer, White

    I had a birth-year '77 Explorer in natural finish a couple of years ago and ended up selling it to fund my '61 LP/SG. I don't regret it in the sense that that the LP/SG might be my favorite guitar, but I always missed it. I've been on the hunt for quite a while, but couldn't find one from that...
