❌SOLD❌ Les Paul Deluxe Sunburst, 1978


Comments The Les Paul is one of the classic workhorses of modern popular music. Produced since 1952 in a number of variations, it appears on all kinds of stages and recordings.

This 1978 Les Paul Deluxe sunburst is in great condition and is a wonderful example of the late 1970’s production, with a 3-piece maple neck instead of the traditional mahogany. Structurally very similar to the Standard and Custom (the main physical difference is the size of the pickup cavities) the Deluxe features mini-humbuckers with a some white brighter, tighter sound than the full-size humbuckers.
