Tricky one this... I think this might well be '71 because of the Les Paul script positioning and retaining wire on the bridge screws... although a genuine '71 would have nylon saddles... Of course, the pot dates would confirm... mind you, with pickup change and mini toggle switch added, the original pots may have gone. Shame whosoever put the new humbuckers in didn't have the wit to do it properly, leaving the gap is just shoddy. Would like to see the guitar in a daylight pic... some of the Deluxe sunbursting could be a bit 'tomato' red... then again, Scott Gorham made those Deluxes cool... 2.5K for a modded workhorse / players Pete Townshend / Thin Lizzy era Deluxe? Someone will snap it up.
