    I'm looking for a '68 Goldtop Standard w/ p90s. MUST be all original and from '68 - no modifications - no repairs. Will consider an early '69 with '68 appointments. Please PM me what you have.

    I've seen the offerings on Reverb, but thought I would see if anyone has one here on MLP for a more reasonable price.

    A rare guitar has popped up that I would like to have, but money cannot buy it. The only way he will part with it is for a '68 Goldtop as described above. I thought I would see if I could make it happen.

    I'm a Cash Buyer - I also have many other Gibsons I could trade.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for the heads up, but he only wants a '68 Goldtop - all original, no repairs. I wish it would be that inexpensive to get this guitar from him! haha

    Sounds like a cool guitar, but not what he's looking for. Thanks!

    If things go well, I’ll be able to make one of my video tour/history/demos about it too!

    Check out dusty strings in Seattle. They have one on their website - i believe it is a 69 but will all 68 appointments. I played it while visiting a few months ago and nearly walked out of the store with it but decided that I couldn't afford it in the end. From I recall, all original except the saddle. Fantastic sounding and playing GT at a good price. Good luck!

    Thanks for the heads up. I sent him the photos! That one might be a bit more worn than he's looking for on this particular trade, but we'll see.

    No problem. For what it's worth, I didn't feel the pics on the site did it justice. Here's a pic I took with my cellphone
