This is a great thread, since I'm a VERY amateur guitarist myself. Neil's Les Paul Deluxe is to me the second most iconic musical instrument in existence--only Paul McC.'s Hofners beat it in my eyes.
You'll notice in the KCRW broadcast from last month that Neil has 2 Les Paul goldtops (or maybe Mark has one of his own?).
There's one track where Mark and Neil are playing one each I think. One looks quite fresh and the older looking one has gained a pick guard that it sorely needed... I'm assuming that's the '68 Neils had for years and years.
