Gibson Pete Townshend Signature Les Paul Deluxe Number-3

Price Available By Request
Untitled-th

In the ’70s, Townshend made the Les Paul Deluxe his weapon of choice for live shows. This Signature model is a limited edition of 75 guitars and re-creates all the quirks of Pete’s #3 Deluxe including the pancake body, neck volute, taped III, and added toggle switches to tap and change phase on the middle DiMarzio pickup.

The adhesive numbering system was Pete’s simplistic method of identifying different guitars and alternate tunings. This example is number 34 of 75
