Gibson Custom 1968 Les Paul Standard Goldtop Reissue Gloss, 60s Gold

The Gibson Les Paul has to be one of the most - if not the most - iconic electric guitars ever produced, and this outstanding reissue of a 1968 "First Batch" Goldtop model recreates all the charisma, tone, and sheer playability of the original.

With its carved Maple top and solid Mahogany back, the 1968 Goldtop Reissue exudes quality, craftmanship, and timeless design. The authentic '68 Medium C-Shape neck provides classic comfort and playability, while the period correct ABR-1 bridge, Stop Bar tailpiece, and Gibson Deluxe Double Line tuners ensure that tuning stability is solid at all times. Custom Soapbar P-90 neck and bridge pickups provide a classic Les Paul tone reminiscent of the very first models, which in turn can be manipulated by the familiar two volume / two tone potentiometers - complete with a hand-wired harness, Black Beauty capacitors, and a three-way Switchcraft switch.

With an inspiring and period correct specification - which covers all aspects of this guitar from finish to electronics, Gibson have again produced an exceptional, inspirational, and accessible alternative to what would be a very expensive original.

What Gibson say:

Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.

The Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue is a meticulously-crafted replica of a ""first batch"" example from 1968, identified by a crown inlay on the face of the headstock. The distinctive look and scarcity of this variation makes it extremely desirable to collectors. Custom Shop has proudly recreated it in exhaustive detail, from the 14-degree headstock angle to the thick cutaway binding to the precise contours and profiles throughout. It offers not only a vintage ownership experience, but a completely inspiring sound and feel with every chord and strum..
