Pay attention, there's a lot to talk about. I love 68 Les Pauls but they are often ten pounds or more. I've owned perhaps a dozen-both with P90's and converted to humbuckers and all have been good guitars. Some have been great but, oh they can be heavy. This one weighs 8 lbs 12 ounces. It is a very late 68 or maybe one of the first shipped in 69. All the features are 68-small headstock, one piece body, one piece neck, 50's style heel, dotted "i" logo and square routed control cavity. It has been refinished (front only-the back and sides are original finish) in sunburst. The top is center seamed and has some interesting birdseye figure. Lots of changed parts and it has been converted very professionally, to humbuckers. The routs are done neatly with great care given to accuracy and neatness. I've had a few sets of pickups in this guitar and it sounds good no matter what I put in it. Right now, it has a low wind 60 PAF in the neck position (7K) and a Wizz Clone in the bridge (8.2K). I can put any pickups you want into it-I have PAFs (white and black), I have t-tops, I have Throbaks, I have at least one Seymour Antiquity. Price will vary. Note that the current price of a PAF is around $5000. The current combination sounds best although I haven't tried a PAF in the bridge. The knobs are real 59 burst knobs. The bridge and tailpiece are nickel repro. The tuners are original 68 double line double ring Klusons. The guard is missing. I haven't pulled the pots but they look to be correct. Caps are black beauty. Frets are replaced as is the nut. Truss rod cover is a real 59 (with roll marks). Case is a later "chainsaw" case. More photos coming.
