About This Listing

1968 Gibson Les Paul Bass in great shape, with Seymour Duncan Thunderbird pickups and removed low impedance circuit. Overall nice shape, showing wear all over body and neck (see pictures).

The Les Paul Bass is often termed the Les Paul Recording, or the Les Paul Professional however these were names of guitars; Gibson literature of the time only ever describes this model as a Les Paul Bass (have a closer look at a 1969 Les Paul bass). It was a companion model to the Les Paul Personal and Les Paul Professional guitars, and all shared the same basic construction and wonderful Walnut finish with similar style components. The production run of this model was sufficiently short to rule out any significant specification changes,

Like all other Gibson guitars of the period, the Les Paul Bass was manufactured at Gibson's Kalamazoo plant, MI, USA, with a little over 1000 instruments shipped between 1969 and (perhaps) 1976. The vast majority had already been shipped though by mid 1971. In late 1971 the Triumph replaced the Les Paul Bass in price lists, but it would not be surprising to find small numbers of the original design shipping over the following few years.

  • Solid Honduras mahogany body
  • three-piece British Honduras mahogany neck
  • Brazilian rosewood fretboard with dot inlays
  • 30 1/2 inch scale
  • translucent Walnut finish
  • 24 fret two octave neck
