Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Standard Goldtop Reissue Electric Guitar, 60s Gold
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 Custom Shop American-made Gibson 1968 Les Paul Standard 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.
The Gibson Custom Shop has proudly recreated this Goldtop Les Paul in exhaustive detail, built from a two-piece plain maple top on a one-piece solid mahogany back with a cream binding and a nitrocellulose gloss finish. The solid mahogany authentic '68 medium C-profile neck is home to a smooth and comfortable Indian rosewood fingerboard — this guitar even has the period-correct 14-degree headstock angle and a thick cutaway binding, with precise contours and profiles throughout.
A pair of wicked Custom Soapbar P90 pickups are matched by a set of 500K CTS volume pots, a pair of 500K CTS tone pots, and a hand-wired harness with black beauty capacitors and a three-way toggle switch for a whole range of versatile and powerful tones. The Custom Shop Gibson 1968 Les Paul Standard Goldtop Reissue offers not only a vintage ownership experience, but a completely inspiring sound and feel with every chord and strum!
