Gibson Custom 2015 True Historic 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS Electric Guitar USED - Ebony

Gibson

The Custom was one of the first genuine single-cut Les Pauls to roar back into the lineup in the late '60s, and has been a popular and collectible evolution of the model ever since. The 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue marries accurate specs and features such as a long neck tenon, full-size Alnico II humbuckers, and an authentic '68 neck profile with the elegant Custom appointments like pearl block markers on an ebony fingerboard, gold hardware, and period-correct multi-ply binding. Dressed in a standard nitrocellulose finish, it's the closest thing to bagging the original return of the "Black Beauty."

This True Historic Spec Reissue Les Paul features double-carved and hand-sanded neck and top profiles, nitrocellulose finish, custom-wound Custom Bucker pickups, hot hide glue joinery, historically accurate serial number. It's available in very limited quantities in and the closest you can come to owning an original vintage Les Paul from the 1950s without actually acquiring an original. It comes with True Historic COA with the guitar's exact serial number, die-cast True Historic badge over the Rhythm/Treble switch access cavity and hardshell reissue Les Paul case.
