Kroc Posted October 10, 2019 Report Share Posted October 10, 2019 Hey all! I just got a great deal on a 1980 Les Paul Deluxe in an online government auction. According to the serial, it was made in October 1980. I'm not sure what kind of pickups are in it, but I'm guessing they're non-original (my research suggests they could possibly be SD Hot Rails?). It also seems to have three switches near the volume and tone knobs (no idea what they're for). It has a Kahler tremolo, which I believe is probably after-market too. Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to actually play it before purchase, but it looks like it's in decent shape, so fingers crossed (...I know, I know, but the price was too good). I'm curious if anyone else might be able to decipher a little more about it from these photos? I'm mainly interested in knowing what the pickups are, and what those switches are for. But I'd also love to know what the general consensus is on 1980 LP Deluxes, and what it might be worth. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers! 🙂 LPDLX-1 LPDLX-2 LPDLX-3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
