by Gibson
Sold out

This 50th Anniversary 1968 Les Paul Custom was designed to be the final say in historical accuracy, tone, and feel. Every detail and spec was meticulously revived by the skilled artisans at Gibson Custom Shop to provide an amazing vintage experience. Each will include 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 300 total instruments produced. 

This example includes all the original paperwork, certificates, tags, and COA. This guitar is in excellent overall condition, save for some light lacquer checking around the nut and neck, the same as almost all examples of these limited production pieces have been known to have.
