Here is a very rare August 1968 Les Paul standard The 501XXX serial number and pot codes date it to late 1968 and has been confirmed by Gibson as around August 1968 making it one of the very early ones. Ok the colour... it's black not a gold top. I asked Gibson when I contacted them and they said it's possible as they did do some custom colours but don't have records. All the same it was done a long time ago and very well and looks fantastic. It also has black knobs to match the colour, so was done properly. Looks stunning and vintage with yellow binding etc., This guitar was recently tried by a well know guitar dealer alongside a mid 50s LP with P90s through an AC30 and we both thought this 68 sounded better. Note some of the features. No volute, non dotted "I" long tenon neck fitting. Currently has Grover tuners but can be easily be replaced with Klusons if you wanted to do it. These early 68s were the first reissues of the LP and made in a similar way to the 50s instruments. This guitar is now fifty years old and very difficult to find from this era. The 68s were only made in limited numbers. It's suggested as little as 1600 were made. It can only increase in value. Comes with the original Gibson case. Of course you can view and try before buying but this will NOT be posted or sent by courier and will only be released on confirmed cleared bank funds. I'm in south east London please contact me for any further info or to arrange a viewing.
