Gibson/Les Paul CUSTOM '68 MODEL
2022.8: I happened to be in the same area when I was on vacation and found this on a flea market app and bought it.
Again, it was an individual the same age as myself.
Unfortunately, the head was broken at that point.
The rear PU had been replaced with a Zebra SH-4, which was a favorite of mine during the melo-core boom era.
Fortunately, the stock one was included, so we put it back on.
2022.9: The broken head was repaired by gluing, the frets were rubbed together, the bridge was replaced, and the missing pickguard was added at the workshop, although it is a current item.
There was a sticker mark on the back of the body and the lacquer paint was melted in some areas, but we consulted with a person who is familiar with painting and had it polished to a much better finish.
I think I got a good deal even though it cost me a lot of money for the repair, considering the recent price hike for a regular line guitar.
