OK, pay attention. This guitar has had a few mods done to it but the important point is that it's a legit small headstock 68 and it's a monster player. As you can clearly see in the photos, it's been converted to hum buckers. Really cleanly done and very professional. The top appears refinished but has aged nicely with some arm wear and checking. Not relic'd. The conversion was probably done in the late 70's. The harness appears to have been changed at the time of the conversion and shows 1979 pot codes. I don't know what pickups were in it in 1979 but I added a set of Throbaks. The finish on the back is original as are the back plates. The back of the neck was refinished and likely sanded since the profile at the first fret is rather thin but the profile at the 12th is pretty big (.79" and .96"). Nut is full 1 11/16". Frets were just done using EVO wire. I think the inlays were replaced as well-they look rather grey to me. The guitar has repro nickel hardware except for the tuners. It had Grovers when I got it and I put a set of 68 Kluson double line double rings with adapter bushings. The original tailpiece (chrome) and bridge (nylon saddles) are included. The plastic is repro except for original knobs and truss cover. The case is a black with yellow but I think its a little later than 68 since most early ones didn't say Gibson on them. The handle is missing. Key thing here is that it sounds magnificent and it's a real long tenon, one piece neck, one piece body 68. Weighs 9 lbs 12 ounces which is pretty average for a 68 Goldtop.
