Gibson 1971 Les Paul Recording Walnut Finish
Gibson introduced the Les Paul Recording in 1971. The Gibson Les Paul Recording had integral transformers to make the output impedance compatible with normal high impedance amps. Used by Les Paul himself throughout his long career it is a versatile sounding guitar that never really caught on for playing rock guitar. You can get some pretty remarkable clean and lush sounding notes out of this guitar. It is very good condition for this 40 year old guitar. It is missing the pickguard and there is a small laquer touchup on the back of the headstock above the serial number.
