Hi, I was wondering if there was anyone here who has any knowledge on the early Navigator Les Pauls and if they could help me identify this old sunburst one, unfortunately this is the only picture i have at the moment but as soon as i get more i will attach! Supposedly its from 1979 and what I believe to be decently high model but i'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is no way identifying this Nav from this one pic.

You need pic of front (with clear view of the logo) & back (with clear view on serial if it has one) headstock, neck heel (does it have a heel cap?), both pickup cavities (tenon & routing), back of the pickups, control cavity, back (how many pieces?)

I can see the big fat brass tailpiece they used to use so it may well be.

Thanks for the help, i was thinking around then due to some features, its all original except for some nickel pickup covers, if i could find out how much its worth that would be great.

Cheers Joel

In the right light the top is really great.
