Here is the full set. I had to do the basses separately due to lack of space.

Hey Dave, I just came back from the Songbirds Guitar Museum in Chattanooga TN. I noticed guitar that you had posted a while back was there. Tony Mottola's Low Impedance Crest was acquired by them and on display in their vault.

Add the first and only owner of a 1974 LP Signature, I could really use the photos of the wiring that vGrog took and sent to Boogiedude . . . Hands was removed for finish work on the body, and now does nor work properly . . . TIA

Hi guys!

As technician i've put my hands for the first time on a Les Paul Recording. The wiring looks like ok and the components in good condition, but the decade control differences are inappreciable, and the bass control make a enormous volume loss. I've tried also connecting the guitar in low impedence directly to a recording desk, no difference.
I've not been able to find good information about this aspect, and i'm not shure if the instrument is a defective one or if is a sort of model's compliant issue.

Maybe somebody here can help me to know more about? 😊

The "DECADE" feature is very hard to hear under most conditions. Using the proper chord with a transformer as close as possible to the amp seems to work best. Dave Gould has explained it better on earlier posts in this thread.

Hi! I'd like to share the pics of my Les Paul Recording copy, unmarked, 2 piece diamond logo, Ibanez pickups, with Gibson moustache on headstock, made in Japan. Its only a cheapie, but its still one of my favourites to play. 🙂

Hi Low-Impedance Guitar Lovers!

If any of you, who owns an early model of a Les Paul Personal one day wants to sell it or knows somebody who wants to sell it, I'd be very happy if you contact me via private message! I am searching the internet for a long time but the early models are just nowhere to be found. 

Greetings and thanks for your help in advance!

Hello & Welcome!

Les Paul Personals  don’t seem to come up for sale very often these days. I watched for quite a few years before I landed mine. Only 370 of these were produced, approximately 50 years ago. Good Luck! I’ll keep my eyes open also.
