Overview

Les Paul Custom Reissue with Very Light Aging and Two 68 Custom Humbuckers

The Gibson Custom 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue recreates the look, feel and sound of an iconic electric guitar design. The 1968 Les Paul Custom joins a maple top to a mahogany back for a clarity and bite you’ll instantly recognize from the days of old-school rock, jazz and blues. Equipped with a set of 68 Custom humbuckers, a period-accurate mahogany neck and a smooth ebony fingerboard, this Les Paul 1968 Reissue has been very lightly aged by the Murphy Lab for subtle touch of added vintage charm. This Gibson Custom Shop Reissue is rounded out with an ABR-1 bridge, stop bar tailpiece and gold-plated Kluson Waffleback tuners. This throwback 1968 Gibson Reissue is available now at Guitar Center.

Mahogany Meets Maple

This Murphy Lab Les Paul is built with a lightweight mahogany body and a 2-piece figured maple top, just like the original 1968 edition. This tonewood pairing added to the sound that inspired a generation of rockers and is sure to inspire you as well.

Classic Neck Specs

As soon as you pick up the Les Paul Gibson Reissue you’ll feel the silky smoothness of the mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. To complete the 1968 look, the neck is topped off with small block inlays and gold-plated vintage-style tuners.

Bright, Tight 68 Custom Pickups

Equipped with dual 68 Custom humbuckers, the Gibson 1968 Les Paul delivers legendary tone that’s like being rocketed back to the late-‘60s. Made with alnico II magnets, these pickups offer the powerful versatility you’d expect from a Les Paul Custom.

Historic Hardware

The 1968 Les Paul Reissue has a fixed ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge for a solid and stable feel under your picking or strumming hand. Along with the popular stopbar tailpiece, this vintage electric delivers greater sustain and top-end shimmer on top of its slick throwback design.

Ultra Light Aged Finish

The Murphy Lab puts this Les Paul guitar through its Ultra Light aging process, showing slight lacquer checking, but very little playing wear. It looks like it has spent the last five decades sitting in a case under the bed and you’re finally letting it out to breathe.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab 1968 Les Paul Reissue comes with a certificate of authenticity and a brown and pink reissue 5-latch hardshell case.
