2018 Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1968 Les Paul Custom and 1968 Les Paul Goldtop. Custom limited to 300 total. Goldtop limited to 68 total. I found this bit in the promo material interesting - "In order to continually improve the design, quality and performance of our instruments and to make use of the best materials at all times, Gibson reserves the right to change specifications without notice" (Sorry for the bad pics. Screen shots from Instagram)

Ok - I am hot for this '68!
I think I will be putting up a guitar for sale for one of these BB '68's.
If i were rich - I'd be buying 5 of these and at least Mick Ronson'ing up two of them.
Hope these are Canada bound. Beautiful recreations!


Saw this Custom in the wild - It's 9lbs!

I turned 50 in January and have a need for a nice aged, light Gold Top with P-90s. I hope nobody but me likes these Goldtops and they end up on the clearance rack before long.

Waddya think the chances are?

I had a 54' BB that had the neon yellow binding....Awesome guitar....but that was too yellow ....this one looks good.

I don't get the logo design of the back plate....

Maybe they're finally getting it. They look really cool!
Why haven't they until now? I don't see a difference to what they've been doing for years now. And I agree, I really like these anniversary models.

Well AFAIK, this looks first histoic 68 with correct pickguard and vintage pup covers. Agree with u that 99% of the guitar should be same as previous 68ri. But still I love it! :)
