    I'd like to know: how can I identify if my Benge is a Claude Gordon model?

    I've tried to see it on internet, but I've found contradictory information.

    Could anyone help me?

    It's a 1972 Benge, LA, 5, MLP

    Very thanks

    Reinoldo,
    A Claude Gordon model will have the letters CG where yours has the letters ml or mlp.

    Tim's right, the valve casing will have CG stamped on it. I have never heard of an MLP with a 5 bell, were those special order? That would be a monster horn....cool!
