1968 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop reissue in beautiful triburst finish

Written by Jazz Brown

Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop 1968 reissue in beautiful triburst finish with highly figured maple top. Slim 60’s neck with ebony fretboard, binding, block inlays and gold hardware. Amazing sounding 57′ classic humbuckers with classic Gibson tone. Tuners are already swapped from grover kidney bean to grover tulip tuners. The pick guard may be removed to demonstrate more of the highly figured flame top, besides that your guitar ‘s all original.
The guitar didn’t have breaks or repairs, however there are more than average pick scratches, belt buckle rash, and other dents and dings (see photos). The guitar is setup with low action in standard A440 tuning with .10 -.52 gauge strings.
