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 was able to get a good deal on a regular line, although it cost me a lot of money to have it repaired considering the recent price hikes.
2023.10.9: PU and knob were replaced and a pointer was added.
The stock 498T/490R had a more mature impression than the rock distortion that I expected due to the fact that it was covered, and in a sense, it was the original Les Paul sound.
