1971 Gibson Low Impedance Brochure

Introducing the Gibson Les Paul Recording and Triumph bass

Catalogue Index

1971 saw the launch of two new low impedance instruments: the Gibson Les Paul Recording guitar, and the Gibson Les Paul Triumph bass.

This was a first for Gibson, in that the brochure also came with a flexi-disc, demonstrating the two instruments. The disk was narrated by Les Paul himself, and guitars were played by Gibson employee / Jazz musician, Bruce Bolen. It was first printed in 1971, and then again in 1973.

Side one featured the Les Paul Recording guitar, whilst side 2 featured a track named Tomorrow, today recorded by Bruce Bolen using both instruments. Take a listen below.

I'm owner of bass recording with serial number 101050. Could you give me the year . Kind regards from France

Hi Etienne, I would suggest your guitar is most likely from early 1973. Have you looked for potentiometer codes? You can find out quite a lot about the Les Paul Triumph bass here

Glad that I learned more about the Les Paul recording on this very nice site. I own a Triumph Bass (though I,m not a bass player) and also a white Les Paul recording ( not seen very often at least not in The Netherlands where I live) Its amazing that this guitar can produce so many different sounds.
