I don't know the answer to your question, but here is a non Gibby custom with Nickel hardware. Paintwork is off white too, photo doesn't show it.

I'm pretty sure all the GC '68s are thin necked.
All the ones I've seen anyway... heavy too.

unfortunately.......from what i've heard....they (GC) cant do/get the antique white......least thats what Bole said....and he's the authority on 68's:thumb::laugh2:

I'm sure Saul can order you one with a smaller neck... The cost won't be as pretty as the guitar though.

the sanest option......would prolly to find a regular new/used Custom....and replace the hardware.......i just wondered if anybody had done that...or had a "rare" one coming from the factory like that.....seems a rare bird:hmm:
