As long as they keep the instrument in tune I'm good. Looks wise I like Grover keystones, but have each of those above. There all good :cheers:

That's the million dollar question...
Maybe some years had different tuners that Gibson put on to these guitars? (That's one theory I've played around with in my head).

I think the Gibson Les Paul Recording is a cool guitar; I've never played on one, but I think it looks cool, and I would love to have one in my collection.

You mean these on the 1975 one?
I like them too.
Not sure how original they are to this guitar, but they look cool.
The 70's came with Schaller esc tuning machines with the Gibson name on it instead of Schaller ( Example the first picture you posted on this thread) The knobs went from the first picture to more of the keystone style button (Example picture two but not Grovers, Still Gibson branded) BUT, the reissue came with Grovers from the factory!! Going to be honest with you I'd just get keystone Grovers! They are great and I love how they feel on my 79 LPC!!! Hope this helps!!!

a site to prove my point on Reissue coming factory installed Grovers!

I am not sponsored by Gibson (even though that would be a dream come true)

i like the brushed nickle in the second pic....i always liked the lp recording and they can be purchased today at a somewhat reasonable price for a vintage player
