• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

You'd be better to stick with the stock P90s, easier to find and a better sound.

Used the subjective “better” twice. Poorly I might add.

Objectively, a routed 1968 Les Paul will be lower priced. That’s better.

The most valuable electric guitar by far is the Burst. Old wood and PAFs. P90 sounds “better”? Objectively. No.

The OP knows what he wants and I hope finds it.

You might get more lucky posting this in the section for vintage 1961-1969 SG's and Les Pauls

Hope you'll find a nice and affordable one. Bear in mind though, that not all aftermarket routings are done exactly to specs. It depends on the luthier's skill, his effort, and knowledge on the subject.

My all original 1968 GT is consigned at Willies American Guitars.
Those old P90’s might surprise you as to how good they sound.

I thought Les Pauls weren't brought back until 69? Confused.
When I first played and learned what a real vintage Les Paul can do I found out about the 1968 models. They are awesome, and the closest thing to vintage 50s guitars that were available. The Standard goldtop only came with P90s, and the Custom was different as it had a maple cap.

I was a huge proponent of the '68s and have millions of posts here about them. I sold all of mine when I found a 1956 to convert.

There were my two favorites. I miss the goldtop and wish I could get it back.

Just my opinion Eric, no need to get your knickers in a twist old chap.
