The original LP Deluxes first released in 1970 may not have been appreciated at the time due to the appearance of the mini humbucker pickups, who some thought were a “scaled down” version of the earlier PAF style humbuckers Gibson had featured in its earlier Les Pauls.
But to those who know them, the mini hums do a great job – like the big HBs but without the mud. These are medium output pickups, with sparkly tops and the clear & full bottom end of P-90s, but without the hum.
This Hall Of Fame Limited Edition reissue is simply a great guitar. It is in spectacular original condition. Not even a mark on the pickguard, and no tarnishing on the hardware – this guitar presents in mint condition.
Fingerboard is in perfect condition with no pitting, and the original frets are in excellent shape with no wear apparent. Vintage style Gibson Deluxe tuners are in perfect working order. Neck is straight and truss rod works as it should.
And the gold painted rear of the neck is absolutely stunning to behold.
This guitar plays just beautifully, with a low action and exceptional clarity in single note or chord configurations. It is wonderfully resonant, with a super comfy medium neck profile. This gorgeous gold guitar has been professionally set up and is ready to rock.
You’ll be hard pressed to find another one of these Hall Of Famers, especially in this condition. They don’t appear on the market too often, particularly in Australia. And though they may be a reissue, we believe the Hall Of Fame Limited Edition Les Paul Deluxe will become collectable in its own right – possibly already has.
Comes in its original Gibson hard shell case in excellent condition.
