1970 Les Paul Jumbo


Recommended Posts

I bought this rare acoustic to fill out my collection of Low Impedance Les Pauls. Not many were produced & due to the location of the pickup, most need extensive repairs to reset the neck.




The previous owner created a web page with some great information, so I'll post it............

Very cool. A rare piece, indeed. Love the crescent moon pick guard! Is this one brazilian on the back & sides?


It does have Brazilian rosewood on back & sides. The pickguard on this one is sort of odd. All of the others have a tortoise shell colored pickguard. This one had a plain TRC & a black pick guard. We think it might have been an early example, but who knows............. I just found an original engraved TRC. Rarer than hens teeth!
