I was visiting my wife's relatives in Rochester and someone suggested I go visit the House of Guitars. I should have known better; this followed me home: It's a 1973 Gibson Les Paul Recording Guitar, all original, no headstock repairs, in really nice condition for a 45 year old guitar. It doesn't have the original case, but it came with a hard shell case in good condition. I used it at rehearsal last night and it sounds outstanding for my Rockabilly band. It has a really nice tight low end and clean highs that cut through without being shrill. It goes from really clean to a good amount of dirt very nicely. I don't think it will get the super saturated distortion sound of a traditional Les Paul, but it is exactly the sound I was looking for. I won't be selling my Gretsch guitars, but this is a really nice addition to the stable.
