    Anybody know anything about the pick ups and electronics on these?
    I believe they were some low impedance type.

    I have a set of these also. The pickups are low impedance super humbuckers, I think they were designed by Bill Lawrence. Both pickups in the guitar, the pickup in the bass are the same pickup. The three position selector switch, is an impedance selector switch I believe.


    I bought this on eBay a few years ago. The seller said it was rarer than hens teeth..........

    Early 70s Les Pauls prices have gone up significantly, especially here in Europe. Nowadays its nearly impossible to find early 70s Custom in good original condition under 4000 EUR (4400 $). 70 and 71 Customs are even more expensive. Deluxes are a bit cheaper, but even by tehm its the same tendency.

    And btw., those minihumbuckers can sound killer, i really like these pickups.

    Here is 73 Deluxe through 72 Hiwatt DR103, fully cranked. By no means shrill or thin sounding...

    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia


    1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom
    1972 Hiwatt DR103, 1972 Hiwatt SE4122
