Morning all, new to the forms here. But not so new to owning Gibson guitars, and basses. I was drawn here looking for some information on a norlin era lp. And found a super knowledgeable, friendly, and inviting comunity. So let me say, thanks for welcoming me in to the ranks.

Sence cruzing the forums ive heard mermers of a couple of members having natural finished one piece top les pauls. I would love to see some of em. And maybe hear some stories, and collect some info on these "rare one piece tops".

Also I understand that there might be a couple of you out there that worked for Gibson at the tike guitars like this were being produced, if any of you Norlin era alumni are still poking around I would be verry grateful to hear from any one with first hand experience from that era of production.

Thanks all for taking the time.
Here are a couple flicks of my Norlin Naty one piece. This one is an '81 standard. Possibly a special order? Or just a lucky find?

This makes no sense whatsoever. A 1 piece MOHAGANY top on an R7?! Vic where ever did you find such a thing?!
They made a few R6s this way, I found one of these in my search for one...
