Gibson Custom Shop ’68 Les Paul Custom Koa Antique Natural 9.11 #000588
For over 20 years Gibson Custom has proudly been the torchbearer of, not only Gibson’s legacy, but also American craftsmanship and the value of human ingenuity. We believe today, as we did 20 years ago, that there remains a place in this world for the best of the best and that there is a value in what we do that extends far beyond the glossy sheen and gratifying weight of a finely crafted Les Paul.
During the Summer of 2020, we were invited to visit the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville TN. After touring the factory and talking shop with some of Gibson’s top builders, we sat down in the design lab to create what would become Eddie’s Guitars Gibson Custom Shop instruments.
This small run of Koa top 1968 Les Paul Customs takes some of our favorite appointments from the 1960s and meshes with a hand picked koa top. For the person that craves the vintage LP sound, but wants the exotic looks of a koa top, then this is your guitar.
