Hmmm. I couldn't find a picture of it, or a pricing. So I am assuming that the guitar is an old guitar. Maybe I am wrong.

I checked the Blue Book of Electric Guitars (7th Ed.) and could not find it listed.

Are you sure it's a Les Paul "Delta"? Could it be something else? Have you tried to research the serial number?

I'm curious now...........

Most of the big name companies have serial number charts, or links to them, on their websites. Generally, they will help with year and locale of manufature. However, with numbers made they usually fall short.

As David mentions below, it may be necessary to contact the manufacurer directly. But, you will have to have the serial number to get anywhere.

All I could find on google was a link to a page which had expired. the link's sample text contained the following words...


"The Les Paul Nashville Tennessee Delta model has had to stop production and is soon to be a collectors item. There are less than 20 of these guitars ..."

The page it linked to only said content expired or something like that, and was dated October twenty-something, '05. That's all I could find. There was a foreign guitar shop site (Swedish I think) with a link, but I couldn't find anything promising in their current inventory.

Intriguing to say the least.

I think you'll have to contact Gibson directly.

I knew that guitar was not available. Maybe you should see Delta Missisipi Blues. Good Luck.

I think you stumbled on this.

Still, at $939+shipping for both of these axes, it still boggles my mind.

However, reading the ad leads me to believe that the guitar in question is not manufactured by Gibson. Maybe not even by Epiphone and there is no listing for that model in my book under Epiphone, either.

I'm still curious.

Carl,
I was not aware that other companies can label them as Les Paul's. Gibson and Epiphone have the patent rights on it unless they are building them for gibson or epiphone. I looked in Musicians friend and a few other magazines and could not find it. I will keep my eyes peeled and will let you know if I run across one.

Exactly, the other companies can't do that.

Which is probably why there are only 20 of these guitars in existance. Because they were caught and told to cease.

That classified goes on to say that the guitar feels exactly like a 58' Les Paul. Well, that guitar in particular is a HUGE dollar bringer in the vintage/collector market. If somebody is copying it the value of the vintage axe would take a blow.

The LP style guitar has a different cut away angle to go with the change in the heel angle.It is not a copy.IT is similar to a les paul,but in no way is it the same.It is actually better to play.It has a very fast neckLP is just a general term.
