Gibson LP Recording 1972


Out of stock

Here we have an original Les Paul Recording from 1972. The “Recording” was introduced in 1971. At the time, the Recording was more expensive than a Les Paul Custom. The launch price for the Recording was $625 and a Les Paul Custom would have cost $595.

The Les Paul Recording has a solid mahogany pancake body with a carved mahogany top. The 3-piece mahogany neck has a bound rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlay. On the headstock we find a mother-of-pearl split-diamond inlay and Gibson logo, just like the Les Paul Custom.

This rare Les Paul is in good overall condition. It plays well and the electronics make it a versatile guitar. At the neck connection there is a very small gap (only at the beginning, probably due to old neck reset). The construction is solid and won't affect gameplay, but we'd like to mention it.

Comes with a non-original vintage case.
