  1. So my first Gibson I proudly bought in 1974 is this Les Paul Deluxe. Of course, over the course of 46 years I have installed Grover machine heads and a couple more modifications. After joining this forum, I had an itch to trace my old friend back to its origin or at least an approximate time it was built. Well, here is a photo of the back head-stock. It shows a 6 digit number and Made in USA imprint. The front is what has me the most curious. I have always noticed that there are two impressions of the logo. It looks as though it was laid down, covered up, and then laid down a second time. Could it be a fake? Playing this ax for nearly 50 years ... well, it would be disappointing to say the least if I learn that my pride and joy was an impostor all this time. Were decals available 46 years ago? I just have to know. If anyone can shine light on my very first guitar and help explain why there are two logo impressions on the head stock of my guitar I would appreciate it. Thank you.
