This guitar, as described in Gruhn's book , is a special order Les Paul. Full size Humbucker equipped Standards were not a production model until 1976. Before then, some guitars were built with full size Humbuckers as a Special Order. The oval sticker on the back of the headstock says Deluxe Model Serial # starts with 00. The truss rod cover says Standard. As you can see in the photos with the pickups out, the cavities have Tobacco Sunburst and laquer finish in them, therefore, no after factory routing. The original pickups have the Pat number stamped on the bottom.
