An Exceptional January 1969 Les Paul Standard GoldTop With P-90s.

This January 1969 Les Paul Standard weighs 9.40 lbs. and has very fat nut width of just over 1 11/16 inches and a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches. Solid one-piece mahogany body with single cream binding and maple top with gold finish. One-piece mahogany neck with a huge profile, the early long tenon neck joint but with the wider headstock. Rosewood fretboard with 22 original jumbo frets and inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers. Headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and gold silk-screened "Les Paul Model." Individual Kluson Deluxe 'double-line' tuners with double-ring Keystone plastic buttons and "D-169400 / Patent No." stamped inside. Serial number "540878" stamped into the back of the headstock. Single-layer black plastic truss-rod cover with two screws. Two P-90 pickups with really hot outputs of 7.74k and 8.11k. Cream plastic pickguard. Four controls (two volume, two tone) on lower treble bout plus three-way selector switch on upper bass bout. Gold plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops. Gibson Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with metal saddles and separate stud tailpiece. The pots are stamped: "137 6850" (CTS last week of December 1968) and the two capacitors are the black cylindrical Sprague "Black Beauty" type. This is one of the earliest 68/69 GoldTops with a typical '59 Les Paul neck that is to die for! There are two small surface marks on the top just to the treble-side of the lower strap-pin and a few small 'dings'/marks on the edges. Overall this wonderful forty-two year old Les Paul Standard is in exceptionally fine condition (9.00) condition. Complete with the original Gibson 22 page hang-tag booklet. Housed in the original Gibson three-latch black rectangular (rounded corners) hardshell case with pale orange plush lining (9.00).
