Description Hi. Now sell this renovation item to someone who wants to give it a new life. According to various forums and music stores, I have been confirmed to be a genuine USA deluxe les paul with maple neck. These were made without serial numbers stamped on the back head between years 75-77. The guitar was bought used around 1978. Weight around 4 kg.

"Made without serial numbers stamped on the back head between years 75-77." Is that true? I don't think I've ever seen a real Gibson without a serial #. Spidy sense it tingling.

Zep, does your '76 Deluxe have a serial #? If it does then this guy's claim that 75-77 LPs don't have serial # is suspect.

Mine has a serial, yes this is very strange, must be a fake?

Looks legit, but that truss rod is maxed!

This is the correct question to ask - not whether it is a Gibson or not. (I think it is a Gibson.)

Whatever happened to the top at the control cavity???? :eek2:

IMO this thing isn't worth more than a couple of thousand swedish crowns at most, and can hardly be for any purpose other than a "labour of love" restauration...
