    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 so very late 68/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.

    I paid 8,900. for my early '69 long tenon (and love it) about 8 years ago. Was a lot but GAS got the best of me. How much in US did it run? The market here is about 10,000 to a high (asking price) of 25,000. that I've seen.
