The Les Paul Deluxe was introduced in 1969 and ran continuously until 1985. Less common than the ubiquitous Standard, the Deluxe flew under the radar with its mini humbuckers and three piece maple neck. Previously owned by a touring musician, this otherwise original instrument was road proofed with a metal jack plate, and a very slight relocation of the strap button.
The two piece body features distinctive and cool oxidization where earlier in the guitar's life, the timber shrank slightly along the join, and copper powder in the gold paint was exposed to the atmosphere. This great playing '70s Goldtop is an absolute rock'n'roll tone monster, and a guitar to keep.
