Looks like a 2242 to me. There were a lot of detail changes over the years, but a bolt-neck black LP with rosewood fretboard is pretty much a 2242, unless I miss my guess:

For once, however, we can pretty much pin down the year. Open-book style headstocks only ran till about 75, and yet that Peace-sign logo is usually on later models with the wave headstock, so it's most likely a '75.

What kind of help do you need fixing it up? New strings are always the first thing, old bad strings cause tuning problems galore, not to mention bad tone. the 3-way selector switches are frequently faulty in older guitars like this too- much more often than pickup failure. Fortunately this is a fairly easy fix and replacement parts are easy to get.

Welcome, let us know what you need help with!
