Has anyone seen a 6 piece top on a les Paul before? I have a 72 deluxe that has 6 different pieces of wood on the top and I just now realized that they came with 3 piece tops so I was curious to see what this may mean. It’s also has a number 2 stamped on the headstock maybe they are related? Thanks!

I understand that the 2 stamped on the head means something like 2nd, there is nothing wrong if it sounds and feels as you expect, but that number indicates that for some reason it did not meet the manufacturing requirements of that time. Anyway it looks very beautiful, please put more photos

I recall seeing a photo of a Norlin Les Paul with a 7 piece top. I’ll look to see if I can dig up the photo.
