Limited Edition Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Goldtop emulating the classic, first issue 68 LP with the wrongly specified neck that for a very short while, had the crown inlay and 'Les Paul' on the truss rod cover...
How’s about this dazzling 2019 Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Standard Goldtop Reissue? It came to us as part of a consignment of similar custom shop pieces. Its completely mint and original in the stunning 60’s gold which we must admit really evokes the original. It comes with all the original documentation and a certificate of authenticity in a plush lined case. Its a brilliant playing and sounding guitar, the guys and gals at Gibson Custom Shop sure do know what they’re doing!
