1968 Gibson Les Paul Standard

Very Good condition, 7/10, according to rumour the
1968 Les Pauls used stock wood from the 1950 s as
they are completely different from any other late
60 s LP with the correct angle neck, small
headstock and great quality wood, the serial
number on this guitar fits in with the second
version of the 1968 Les Paul where the headstock
silk screen says Les Paul Model instead of the
first crown inlaid version, all original parts
except for the outputjack plate which is now a
great looking aged repro creme colored plate (when
we got the guitar it had a metal plate with new
slot head screws), dotted i in the logo, long
tenon, square route control cavity, double ring
double line Kluson Deluxe tuners, no volute, soft
V-shape neck (like many 50 s Les Pauls), one piece
mahogany neck with glued on ears on the headstock
(a bit darker wood), deep binding in the
cutaway,still has the original nibs so the very
worn frets are probably original (will need a
refret soon but we will leave this to the next
owner, pots date 1376745 (45th week of 1967) and
all the solder joints look untouched but there is
an added ground wire from the bridge tone to the
neck volume and a wire that is soldered to a wood
screw in the cavity, original Gibson bridge (Pat
No 2.740.313) with nylon saddles and original
light weight aluminium tailpiece, original white
plastic including the pickguard (to which someone
has added a layer of aluminum foil underneath, not
sure why) and a distinct fade under the pickguard
in the goldtop from sunlight, the strap button by
the neck has been moved about 10mm to the side
(probably for improved balance), lots of little
dents in the finish, especially on the top under
the arm (from a studded bracelet perhaps?), some
finish wear on the back of the neck including
original square hardcase with red lining and an
original hangtag stamped model L. PAUL STAN. ,
2pc P90 pickups with original creme UC-452-B
covers and see thru bobbins which have not been
rewound proven by the factory masking tape, 4pc
reflector knobs, in the neck pickup cavity there
is an added piece of brown plastic to improve the
pickup screw attachment, old slight separation
under the fingerboard by the last 5 frets before
the body attachment, probably from shrinking wood,
modern repro switch tip but the original (which is
cracked) is still in the case

Price: SEK 210000
