    It is a 1974 Deluxe with a mahogany neck. I got it from Action Music in Arlington, Virginia about an hour ago.

    I've played that one at Action a few times. Hopefully you got a better price than what it was marked at.

    I do love me a goldtop LP deluxe though. Everything about them just seems "right".

    Their prices are fair. Most of their stuff is in really good shape and in good playable condition. I have never went in Action Music without buying something. At last year's Philly guitar show I got a 1960 ES-330TD from them. A few weeks ago I got a Gibson GA-20. I have a Harmony Rocket, a Cunetto "Nocaster", a blackface Princeton, and a Comins Jazz Guitar Amplifier that I got from Action Music. Right now they have an old Danelectro Convertible that I am thinking about buying if I sell a couple things on eBay.

    Nice guitar! It looks like new.

    I've got a 78 Les Paul Deluxe that I bought new. Those mini-humbuckers have a great tone.
    I often put the switch in the middle position and back off the neck pickup just a touch. It retains that crunchy sound but mixes in a little body.
    Congrats.

    I played that very guitar.

    It's a good one. Plays beautifully.

    Heavy but not too heavy.

    Sounds great.

    Congratulations.
