Wine Red finish

1976 Wine Red Les Paul Deluxe

This Les Paul Deluxe shows all the typical features of it's vintage: speed knobs, Kluson 325-VP machine heads, Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and chrome tailpiece.

The finish of this guitar was newly described as Wine Red, to avoid confusion with the newly available Cherry Sunburst finish; prior to 1975 it would have been simply Cherry. Gibson Les Paul Deluxe shipping figures indicate just 14 Wine Red Les Paul Deluxes in 1976, but it was a very low-shipping year for the Deluxe all round; just 172 instruments in total (compared to 2561 the previous year, 10484 in the peak year, 1973, and over 35000 throughout the decade).

Have a look at the Les Paul Deluxe in the 1975 Gibson Les Paul catalog.

The 22 fret fingerboard is rosewood, with pearl trapezoid inlays. The Les Paul Deluxe, like other Les Paul models in constructed of a two piece 'pancake' mahogany body with a carved maple top. The matching cream of the binding, scratchplate, pickup and switch surrounds contrast beautifully with the deep wine red of the body. This is a beautiful guitar!

The Deluxe had an inlaid 'Gibson' headstock logo, and silk screened 'Les Paul Model' script. The two-ply truss rod cover has the 'Deluxe' model designation. The serial number on the reverse of the headstock is one of the short-lived decals that was used in the mid 1970s. The first two digits, 00, indicate a 1976 year of manufacture. Note, this decal also holds on the model name and 'made in the USA'.

The neck of this guitar is three-piece maple, with a strengthening volute. The three separate pieces can clearly be seen on the reverse of the headstock.
