• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

First reissue sunburst with humbuckers?

Officially in 1976. But there were many made in 74, still with mahogany neck and early 70s specs (transitional neck tenon, Kalamazoo made). Unofficially they were rarely made as factory routed Deluxes even in 72/73 (many with small script early 70s "Standard" logo on trussrod cover).
