Summary: First released in 1969, the Deluxe saw the introduction of the Mini Humbucker to the Les Paul lineup. Mini Humbuckers retain the hum-free performance of their full-sized cousins but with a somewhat clearer and brighter tonality. The new Deluxe has features that were inspired by those early models from the 1970s, with a non-weight relief mahogany body and bound maple top, a bound mahogany neck with a Rounded C profile, a Graph Tech nut, and a traditional Les Paul control layout with 2 Volume and 2 Tone controls hand-wired with Orange Drop capacitors.

Body: Mahogany with a bound Maple top, Goldtop.

Neck: Mahogany with a bound Rosewood fingerboard, 24.75” scale length, 1.695” nut width, 12” radius, “C” profile, 22 medium jumbo frets, pearl block inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Two Mini Humbuckers, replaced Grover tuning keys, tunomatic bridge/stopbar tailpiece, 2x volume/2x tone controls/3-way pickup selector, cream pickguard/pickup covers, GraphTech nut.

Cosmetics: This guitar has light surface scratches and light buckle rash. The headstock face has light surface scratches (See Photos Please). The back of the neck is in great shape with only a couple small indentations and the frets show minimal wear. The tuning keys have slightly tarnished.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: Tuning keys have been replaced with Grover kidney button tuning keys.

Weight: 9.535 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships in the original hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
