  1. Hello, I've been doing some research and now i'm really sure it's a '76 Custom. The serial n° decal, the serial n°itself and some other specifics already said it's a '76 custom. But yesterday i had someone look at the pickups. They were the t_top kind of pickups, with the serial number 2,737,842 stamped in the metal bottom plate. they also had a date stamped in ink which said Sep 1 1976, so that's pretty obvious I think. my only remaining question is, can I be sure it's a real T-top, without removing the cover plate?
  2. Oh, and I'm sorry about the chrome hardware remark. More accurate would be silver/metallic colour, as in no gold-looking hardware.
  3. If it is a '76 custom? What kind of Pickups would be in it? I've also noticed the neck consists of three pieces, would that be correct? Sorry about vall the questions but I just want to know everything there is about this guitar. Wood, hardware, tuners,... . I also noticed the serial number is on a oval-shaped decal. thanks! Jonas
  4. Wat is een voluut? ik lees hier trouwens net dat het heel raar zou zijn dat de inlays en hardware niet goudkleurig zijn. verklaring daarvoor?
  5. Could it be it has worn off? is a bit strange, no?
  6. Hallo, ik heb deze post ook op het engelstalig gedeelte gepost. Ik heb dus de les paul custom van mijn vader geërfd. Nu zijn mijn moeder en ik wel nieuwsgierig uit welk jaar deze LP dateert. mijn moeder is bijna zeker dat hij deze heeft gekocht voordat ze mekaar ontmoetten (dat was dus rond 1976). Als ik echter het serienummer ingeef (via the guitar dater project) staat er dat deze in 1976 werd gemaakt? het is een zwarte LP custom 'black beauty' met serienummer 00119898 dat op de achterkant van de headstock staat. Het serienummer is er niet in geponst zoals bij de huidige LP's maar eerder erop 'geschilderd'in het goud-bruin net zoals bij de lp's van rond 76, samen met de woorden les paul custom - made in USA. De inlays en hardware zijn niet goudkleurig maar gewoon zilverkleurig. Kan er mij hier iemand mee verder helpen? Ik kan foto's voorzien als de gitaar terug is van herstellingen. Alvast bedankt!
  7. I have a question concerning my father's Les Paul Custom. There's a bit of confusion as to how to date the guitar. My father passed away some years ago so I can't ask him anymore. The issue is that my mother was sure he bought the guitar before they met (that was around '76). But when I search the serial number it says it was made at around '76 also. The serial number is 00119898, it's a black les paul custom, with chrome (no gold-coloured) hardware. When I look at the serial number on the back of the headstock it also looks exactly as a '76 les paul custom (gold coloured numbers and letters saying made in usa - les paul custom) but as I said before, the hardware and pearl inlays are silver-coloured. As far as I know, the guitar was bought in Belgium. Right now the guitar is in for some small repairs, but as soon as I get it back, i can provide some photo's. Thanks to anyone able to provide some info!
  8. I'm looking to date the les paul custom of my late-father!
