Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments

Two classic-sounding Gibson '68 Custom humbuckers give this Gibson 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. Other traditional appointments include a historic long neck tenon for a solid fit and vintage tone; hand-scraped, multi-ply binding for Gibson's renowned "tuxedo" look; a lightweight aluminum tailpiece for enhanced sustain and tone; and hide glue neck construction for a truly handcrafted guitar. You also get gold hardware, waffle-back tuners, Black Witch Hat knobs, and pearl block markers, providing you with period-correct looks that are sure to attract attention. When Gibson unveiled this guitar here at Sweetwater, we all went wild. You will, too!

Nitro finish, for the look and feel of a classic

This Gibson 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue wears a gorgeous hand-wet-sanded nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a classic axe - one that will only improve with age.
