Les Paul Deluxe and Pro Deluxe

1981 Gibson (Rosetti, UK) catalogue page 2

The first of three sides on the Gibson Les Paul series. The two models shown here are the well-established Les Paul Deluxe and a shorter-lived model, the Les Paul Pro Deluxe. The main difference between these two models was the choice of pickup: mini humbuckers in the Deluxe, cream P90s in the Pro Delxue. Furthermore fretboard materials were rosewood on the Deluxe and Ebony on the Pro Deluxe.

This was the final UK catalogue appearance of the Pro Deluxe; the final US appearance had occurred the year before in the 1980 Gibson Guitars booklet.

These instruments were priced in the UK as follows: Les Paul Deluxe £725; Les Paul Pro Deluxe £789.

The examples shown are in Cherry Sunburst (Deluxe) and Tobacco Sunburst (Pro Deluxe) finishes.
