This is exactly what mine is. The story from the gentleman I bought it from was that it was a custom-ordered Standard in the early '70s.
I am still somewhat perplexed, as the serial number on the headstock indicates it is a 1970-1972 Kalamazoo-made guitar. The pot codes have a 1974 date though. The frets are super low-profile, like a '69 Custom.
But either way, the pickup routes are most certainly factory humbucker. Do you have an estimate for what this guitar might be worth? (I don't plan to sell it anytime soon.)

Actually a 1969 Custom would have narrow and low fretwire not wide and low..... this type of fret (low/wides) are considered a later period fret and the noodle style mop Gibson logo is also a later period incarnation.... it is closer to a '74 than not.
I rather let others give a number in value as i always give numbers too low for some...... it's because i been around these guitars when they sold for $300 to $400 new..... they're just old used guitars to me now.....
