An incredible Vintage Gibson 1968 Les Paul Standard "Goldtop"

You're looking at a very nice example of the sought after and highly desirable 1968 Les Paul Goldtop.   If you know, then you know!   These are becoming more and more desirable as prices for 50's Goldtops and Bursts have gone through the roof in the last few years.   These Les Pauls were made by the same master Kalamazoo hands that made those guitars, and the early examples like this one share nearly all the same features and construction methods of their 1950's counterparts.   Most in the know are aware that these 1968 Goldtops often CRUSH tonally and can be every bit as good, and in many cases better, than 50's Les Pauls.  That is absolutely the case with this fine example.   

This example is 100% original and has been absolutely lovingly maintained over the last 52 years.  It features two very strong p-90 pickups that can go from warm and wooly to downright raunchy depending on how hard you push them.   The neck profile on this is BEEFY and it has a full 1 and 11/16th nut width.  This one has ALL the desirable features:  The neck and body are both 1 piece (of course), small 50's style headstock, deep dish 50's style top carve, long neck tennon, early style control cavity route, no "volute" or "made in the USA stamp".  

We are happy to answer any and all questions regarding this fantastic Les Paul and have tons of photos available.  More info as follows:
  • The original finish has only minimal wear - amazing condition for it's age!
  • Serial number 529891 dates this to December of 1968
  • All original parts, electronics and hardware.
  • Pots date to the 52nd week of 1968
  • 100% original finish with no overspray or repairs
  • Original double ring Kluson tuners work perfectly 
  • Original DARK rosewood fingerboard - the GOOD sounding dark stuff!
  • Original frets show very little wear and play great

There is only one available!
Don't miss it!
