This is what GuitarIdol said earlier in the thread regarding the 12 string Firebird:

"Info is coming out all the time about various guitars Randy used. The 12 string Gibson Firebird which is pictured in the recording pics from Ridge farm. That was a guitar that Ozzy bought from his PA Dave Tangye. It was giving to Randy, but another guitar that has vanished. It's never mentioned and as far as i am aware was part of his guitar arsenal."

Can you tell me about his first guitar?

Kathy: The first one he ever played on was that old Gibson.

Kelly: My mom’s father who was a doctor played guitar as a hobby, and he had an old dark 1918 Gibson Army/Navy special. My brother discovered that guitar and started playing on it.

Kathy: That was the beginning of his guitar playing. We still have that guitar. It's in my mom's bedroom.

Kelly: It doesn’t even say Gibson where the tuner thingies are. It says it inside the guitar.

With Randy now inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, they have his original Jackson Concord as well as pedalboard (among other things) on display.

My question is: Has Randy's actual original Les Paul ever been on display??
I wonder if it will be? I'd love to get some Hi-Def photos of it and all the way around if possible.

There are a lot of great quality current photos of the white LPC in the "Randy Rhoads" book. I used them as a reference when I customized my '74 Custom to make it closer to Randy's:

Could you be more specific and post the link to the book you're referring to?!?
There are more than one book in regard to Randy.

My Custom isn't as worn as Randy's was, but I'm quite happy with it:
