Yup! Those are from the last version. Notice they are built on a typical Les Paul body, reduced in size and shape as well as having a maple cap. The older all mahogany larger body was never seen again but the mahogany cap reappeared on that reissue/tribute a while back. Has anyone seen an all mahogany, (mahogany cap), version with the last, regular body size?
I’ve never seen anything but the maple cap version. They were very heavy beasts, some seemed heavier than my Les Paul Personal.
Here is a shot of the 1973 & then the 2013 reissue 40 years later.....
