This is a heavily modified 1969 Les Paul Deluxe. Former owner, producer and famed studio session guitarist Jimmy Calvert (Tommy James and the Shondelles, Ringo Starr, John Lennon) had Seymour Duncan humbuckers installed, as well as a coil splitter mini toggle switch for the neck pick up to help reduce low-end.
With serial number 855783, this guitar was manufactured some time between June and December of 1969. Body shows extreme wear that only comes from decades of gigging live and countless studio sessions. Oh if this guitar could talk, the stories it would tell.
She now has a special place among her much more pristine sisters, showing them that you don’t have to be a Barbie to attract attention and deliver the goods.
