I have finally put the trigger on this beauty. Former owner apparently kept her only at home and played her rarely. The case is still nearly like new and without smell, so the guitar wasnt used live. The guitar is all original to the last screw.

Its typical early 70s Les Paul tonewise - with excellent clarity and crispy attack, tight bass and great sustain, really can growl and throw out some punchy crunchy riffs. Absolutely suited to oldschool 70s raw hardrock or progrock etc. Neck is very comfortable and fast with significant taper.

Interesting is, that this guitar has pots from 42th week of 71 and still has 60s smaller type of diamond on headstock and same sized 2nd and 3rd frets from the higher side of fingerboard like all older ones do have.
This darker bourbon-type finish is fairly rare for 71. I am in love again.:)

Wow! Fantastic, beautiful guitar. I'd get rid of those awful knobs, but other would say to keep it stock. Everything else = gorgeous!
