The Gibson Les Paul DeLuxe was used on Over The Hills And Far Away on the 1977 US Tour. There is no evidence that this guitar was used prior to or after this.

It differs from the 1969 Gibson Les Paul DeLuxe 'No. 3' due to its smaller headstock and thin cutaway binding.

It may have been the 1952 Gibson Les Paul purchased on December 13, 1974 by Jimmy Page from The Babys' guitarist Michael Corby, in London, England. (Receipt shown below)
