Overview

A reissue of a rock icon with vintage tone and modern playability.

The Gibson Custom 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue is a painstaking recreation of a vintage classic. Handcrafted by the expert luthiers at the Gibson Custom Shop, every spec has been revived to provide an unparalleled level of historical accuracy and tone. Instead of a solid mahogany body, it features a solid maple top on a mahogany back to add clarity and articulation, instantly recognizable to the rock guitarists who made the original a legend.

Authentic 1968 Construction

This reissue was designed to be the final word in recreating a vintage 1968 Les Paul Custom. Each detail, from the rounded mahogany neck profile to the ebony fingerboard and mother-of-pearl block inlays, has been meticulously crafted to provide an experience that harkens back to an iconic era in music history. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic ebony elegantly ages and wears over time, further enhancing the vintage vibe.

Versatile Humbucking Pickups

The Gibson Custom 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue comes equipped with a pair of custom humbucking pickups for a range of tones from warm and rounded to aggressive and biting. The neck pickup provides a deep, throaty sound suited for jazz and blues while the bridge pickup delivers an articulate growl perfect for hard rock. With the flip of a switch, you can combine the pickups for a tone that lies somewhere in between.

Solid Maple Top Enhances Articulation

Rather than a solid mahogany body, this reissue features a maple top on a mahogany back. The maple adds clarity and definition, allowing each note to ring through. Paired with the mahogany back, you get the best of both worlds - the warmth and resonance of mahogany and the crisp bite of maple. The combination provides exceptional note separation and string-to-string definition.

Secure your piece of rock history with the Gibson Custom '68 Les Paul Custom Reissue today.
