Active les Paul


Recommended Posts

Hey does anyone know what year Gibson made the les Paul that had active pick ups and coil splitting switches on it ? It took a battery with a screws in cover on the back if I recall . I used to own one but sold it years ago . It was a basket case when I opened up the case . The lady wanted $800 for it but settled for $400 . It was black but finish turned milky white . On the way home I bought some compound and took everything off and had it looking like a black pearl in two hours when it was done , then I sold it for $1200 ! It was too complicated for me anyway . But it had a lot of tonal possibilities . I like simple , switch volumes and tones .
