Product description

Heavy-Aged 1968 Les Paul Goldtop

50th Anniversary Re-issue

In the summer of 1968, Gibson did something unprecedented. They re-released two guitar models that were discontinued a decade earlier, a Les Paul Custom and a Les Paul Goldtop. Many famous guitarists at the time adopted 1950s Les Paul models because of their heavy tones, vocal qualities and endless sustain, creating a demand for the classic body style that continues through today. This 50th Anniversary 1968 Les Paul Goldtop was meticulously crafted to be an exact replica of one well-worn original example – a guitar that just so happens to belong to a Gibson Custom Shop employee who received it new in 1968! Every one of these recreations perfectly captures the character and vibe of that invaluable original, the result of exhaustive study, uncompromising attention to detail and fine American craftsmanship. Each includes an exclusive case, collectible switch plate medallion, throwback hang tags and guitar picks, and a copy of the 1968 Gibson Gazette which announced the new Les Paul models to the world. Limited to only 68 total instruments produced.

All pictures you see on this page are from this exact guitar. In other words, what you see is exactly what you get.
