Limited Edition of 75 In February 2004, Gibson introduced a Pete Townshend SJ-200 Limited acoustic guitar in commemoration of Pete’s 1968 Gibson J-200 used for writing and recording throughout his career beginning with Tommy, namely Pinball Wizard.

In the 1970s, Pete Townshend made the Les Paul Deluxe his weapon of choice for The Who’s live shows.

Rendered with all the period-correct details of an early ’60s Les Paul/SG Special, with Townshend’s preferred hardware complement, this model represents the early ’60s SG Special with a smaller pre-’65 pickguard (5-ply B/W/B/W/B) that Townshend used for the first British Quadrophenia shows in late 1972 and early ’73, before switching to a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe for the remainder of the ’70s.

In November 2005, Gibson released the third (in series of three) Signature Gibson Les Paul Deluxes, based on Pete’s #9 1976 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, in Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish.

A final “feature” is a “Break Here” sticker on the back of the neck at the eighth fret.

Original ’70s construction techniques bring to life this ’76 Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop, based on a guitar originally played by Pete Townshend on stage and now displayed in London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. 2016, in Oberhausen, Germany, Pete used a modified Gibson Artist Series Pete Townshend Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop for the first half of Won’t Get Fooled Again only.

At his request, Fender incorporated a method for him to easily access both voices without switching guitars.

A two-post Fishman™ Powerbridge tremolo bridge provides a palette of acoustic and hybrid acoustic/electric tones for Townshend to easily access as dictated by his needs.

The necks are hand-shaped by the same craftsmen that built the originals in the ’60s.
