1970 Les Paul Custom

I have acquired what I believe to be a late 1970 LPC. Looking for some help verifying this. Serial is 927XXX, pots appear to be original, and are stamped 1377040. Volute.
No dot above the “i”. Spaghetti logo not squared off. Square wiring hole in cavity. Sprague caps. Waffle tuners.

Well worn, and played in, which suits me fine. Best color for a Custom, Black.

Any help confirming this or with id, would be appreciated.
