    Is my Les Paul from 1967? Or is it a reissue of some kind?

    Hi all,
    I would appreciate any assistance anyone can give me on trying to date my Les Paul Custom, which I always thought was from around 2005, but I'm having a lot of trouble making sense of the serial number (046098), which is stamped into the wood (not inked). This serial number apparently corresponds to the year 1967? That seems doubtful to me.

    That is a custom shop guitar and the serial number indicates that it is a re-issue of as 1968 Les Paul Custom made in 2004. Information on decoding custom shop serial numbers is here https://www.gibson.com/Support/Serial-Number-Search (scroll down to the Gibson Custom section)
