    1969 or 1970 Les Paul Deluxe

    Hi all,

    Trying to get an opinion on a year.

    I have an LP Deluxe with the serial number 891851A. No volute, no Made in USA, open B and O, no dot on the I and pots are 34th week of 1969. My understanding is that the A wasn’t added until 1970, but all other signs point to 1969. Has anyone seen a 1969 with an A after the serial?

    Yes, I’m aware of this site. All the specs conform to a 1969. Ive just never seen one with an A at the end.

    Maybe the site site owner can shed some light.

    Never seen an number like that. Looks legit (if original finish)

    Pot codes say mid '69. So it was late 69 or early 70.

    Very late 69, most probably with pancake body. The A seems not original there.
    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia
