This LP is up for sale locally on Craigs List. I know 1975 was deep in the Norlin era but did they really use wood plugs like this in their sandwich bodies?
No that's the only pic showing the sides. Rest of it looks like a normal beat up '75 Deluxe gold top. Even in the Norlin era I would not think they could make such a mess.Any pics showing the sides near the strap buttons?
Normally, both layers of mahogany were each one piece. But that looks like a two or more piece layer where the outline cut through the seam.
Thanks for clearing that up. I always assumed that both slabs of mahogany were whole pieces when glued together.Thats not an insert at all, its merely a multi-piece inner mahogany slab with the inner piece only just exposed. Many of the guitars had this inner layer as multipiece, but they usually did them for the Customs that were opaque.

Guitars are glued (or bolted) together from a number of pieces of wood or plastic..... acoustic guitars wouldn’t exist without multiple pieces.... or violins... cellos....pianos... or any wooden instruments.
Gotta love trees and glue.
If it sounds and plays good... who cares?
