Steve Jones from the Pistols, often seen with a Custom or a Firebird. I was watching the new Varvatos docusereis over the weekend and saw some footage of Steve playing a Double Cut Tobacco Special. It looks like it has a unique inlay at the top frets (seen below). Does anyone know anything about this model? I thought Tobacco Bursts were only found on Single Cut Junior's back in the day?
Thanks

To my eye it's a rebuilt refinished 1959 Les Paul Special that likely had the neck broken off at the heel and repaired or replaced. I'd base this on the pickup position and fancy "goof hider" inlay on the high frets.


70's ones look totally different. Especially the pickguard, the fret number at which the neck joins the body, and the neck pickup position.
