    Hi
    Always wanted a late 60s gold top with P90s, been looking for a while and missed out on a few.
    Recently came across this one at a UK dealer, price was a little steep but after looking at the condition I persuaded myself it was worth the extra outlay.
    Serial 531000 which makes it very early 69, all features are 68. It's in mint condition with original case, untouched electrics, 6833 pots, weight 9.4lbs.

    Wow, what a beauty, congrats! Still with pronounced dish carved top. I love these late 60s Les Pauls, i enjoy 69 Custom in similar condition too.

    How is the tone of this guitar and weight?

    Nice weight - interesting is, that Customs are nearly always a bit heavier. Mine is just a hair under 10 lbs.
