From The Les Paul Recording Guitar Users Forum:

The Les Paul Recording Guitar is probably the best known of all of Gibson's Low Impedance models and was produced in the greatest numbers. It was introduced in 1971/72 as a replacement for the ailing Personal and Professional models. The first version (top picture) was produced from 1971 until 1977. The second version with a slightly altered layout was produced from 1977/79. The main difference between the Personal/Professional models and the Recordings is that an Impedance Transformer was built in to the body. However, this did not alter the fact that these guitars still performed at their best when plugged into a mixing desk at Low Impedance setting or, when used with an Amplifier, with a suitable Impedance Matching Transformer at the amplifier end of the connecting lead.
