The Les Paul Triumph was launched in 1971 as a replacement to the earlier Les Paul Bass which was available from 1969-1971. The main change was the addition of a Hi-Lo impedance selector switch. Other changes were cosmetic; this switch and all other controls were all situated on the front mounted control panel. The standard finish was natural mahogany, with white becoming available from 1975(?). This bass also featured the split diamond inlays on the headstock.

A 1972 Les Paul Triumph bass, serial number 621106 and stamped "Made in USA". This bass has a fast action neck, with the wide range of tones that only a Gibson Triumph "recorder" can produce. The only sign of wear are the few small rub marks on the back of the bass where a buckle. or more likely jean rivets, have rubbed against the back finish. Apart from that, excellent condition and finish, complete with the Bridge cover. A superb example of this unique example of Les Paul's creativity, for players or collectors.
