    Opinion on '68 Les Paul Custom please?

    I've posted a thread about a '68 standard, but I also found this nice '68 Custom.
    It should be all original, except the '73 humbuckers. The originals should be available, but I have no picture yet.

    Between the two, I'd definitely take the Standard Goldtop

    I've had 3 '68/69 Customs over the last 48 years. I sold my last one last year. Fun guitars but ultimately, I don't miss them. The second one I had was a fantastic guitar; kept it for about 20 years. The last one I owned seemed to have a tone in the ebony that couldn't be dialed out. Ultimately, I prefer rosewood.

    I had one original '68 Standard too, that was back in the 70s. Fantastic guitar. Loved the feel and sound but the pickups were too noisy for live use back them. Did love the sound though...

    Thanks for the opinions. I have a sweet spot for those Customs. But it's priced pretty high.
    Any comments on originality?

    Have you researched this on the site late60sLesPauls.com?

    You should visit that site and do some research there. You’ll want to get a good look inside the control cavity too.
