OVERVIEW

A classic reissued in Heavy-Aged style for its 50th birthday.

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 very limited-edition 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.

This 50th Anniversary 1968 Les Paul Goldtop 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.
