  • Description

    The 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS brings back a killer Black Beauty in all its glory. Built in the image of the Custom that re-emerged in '68, this Les Paul Custom Reissue sports all the deluxe LP Custom appointments plus an authentic '68 neck profile, a period-correct long tenon neck joint, a pair of vintage-accurate Alnico II humbuckers, and more!

    Featuring an authentically carved maple cap and a mahogany back, the 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue comes handsomely dressed in its legendary upscale attire. The ebony VOS finish is hand-sprayed in nitrocellulose lacquer and wet-sanded by hand to add to its vintage appeal. Catering to that unmistakable "Tuxedo" aesthetic, the 1968 Les Paul Custom Reissue boasts classy hand-scraped, multi-ply binding on the top, back and headstock.

    The historically-accurate long tenon neck joint provides a solid feel and unparalleled sustain, and is fitted to the body with hide glue adhesive. Carved from mahogany into a vintage-correct 1968 Les Paul Custom profile, the 24.75"-scale neck carries a superbly playable 12"-radius ebony fingerboard that showcases classic pearl block inlays. As you'd expect from a late '60s Les Paul Custom, the headstock features an aged pearl split diamond inlay and Gibson logo.

    For that authentic tone, bite and growl of late '60s-era humbuckers, the 1968 Les Paul Custom comes equipped with a pair of '68 Custom Alnico II pickups that were modeled after real world examples of original humbuckers from that era.

    Of course, the 1968 Les Paul Custom fitted with all-gold-plated, vintage-correct hardware including gold pickup covers, a set of reissue waffle back tuning machines, and the traditional pairing of an ABR thumbwheel bridge with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The hardware has been aged to perfection to add to the beautiful vintage vibe. A 1968 LP Custom pickguard & truss rod cover, black witch hat knobs with gold inserts, black trim rings, reissue black control plates and a special 2015 Gibson Custom medallion switch plate cover round out this premium vintage-inspired package.

    Comes complete with a reissue brown hardshell case with pink fur lining and a Gibson Custom Historic Certificate of Authenticity in a trifold binder.
