The 1971 Italian Gibson catalog shows three Les Paul guitars. The then brand new Gibson Les Paul Triumph bass, and two guitars, the Les Paul Custom and Les Paul Deluxe. The latter two models use the same images as in the 1970 Les Paul brochure. Interestingly the Les Paul Recording guitar, although described and despite appearing on the front cover, is not pictured on this page - very surprising considering this model was very much Gibson's flagship new model of 1971.
