70's and 80's are good, don't listen to the Norlin haters out there I'd say they are still damn fine guitars! The early 90's had some beautiful looking les pauls as well. Nothing beats 1959 though or so the story goes 😁
59! I wish. Smaller neck, overwound pickups, flame tops, original sunburst! It seems almost everyone who owned one became famous, or so they say. Let's see, bloomfield, green, clapton, gibbons, beck, felder, richards, and page to name a few. I know i'm missing some. I've heard stories that slash played one, but i also read that someone in venice beach or somewhere made him one to those specs. Fascinating guitar, lots of history.
