• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Indentify this Norlin please

I have a 70's Norlin era LP Custom, Serial # 127779. The body is a 2 piece mahogany sandwich, with a mahogany neck and ebony fret board. What things can I look for to nail down the "exact" year of manufacture? Part numbers or distinctive body features? Guitar is a cherry burst. Condition is 9.9 of 10. Value?

Thanks to all who took the time to read this.

COuld be anywhere from '70-'74 (maybe even very early '75). To nail it down, check the pot codes (stamped on the back of the pot- easily visible when you take the cover off).
