    I have two answers for you, and this isn't going to help your dilemma;

    1. On paper, there shouldn't be an ounce of sonic or tonal difference between the two guitars.
    Further, most of us don't have the quality of ears to tell the difference, even it there was one.


    2. You can grab two identical Les Paul guitars, same models, same features, with sequential serial numbers even,
    one of them may sound, play, and feel better to you than the other one.
    It's the nature of guitars that are built by hand, to certain standards, but with different slabs of the same type woods, and with the same pickups, but some produced on a Monday, with the other ones produced on a Wednesday.

    The bottom line?
    Play them both.
    Touch them, each in order, and feel them, play them, and experience them.
    One will feel like your next guitar, and the other one won't.

    Oh, and if you are going strictly with mail-order, and you can't play them before hand?
    It's all a gamble and a crap-shoot anyway.
    You will get what you get.

    Good luck to you, either way.

    I'm a big fan of Joe Walsh.

    And Carvin too.
    Their PA gear (powered mixers, speaker cabs) are top-notch and tough as nails.

    I recall also that Steve Vai has worked with Carvin for many years, and his Evolution series amplifiers are made by Carvin.

    I can't say, though, that I have ever held or touched too many Carvin guitars.
    Just not that many around on the used guitar market.

    Probably because they were custom-ordered, and the original owners cherish them and hang onto them.

    Spark,love the sentiment,To be fair, I did express a wish for all of them to die painlessly.
    (And then to get eaten by sharks, who are technically God's creatures, in their own pointy-toothed way.)
    That counts for something, right?

    I'm playing a large gig in northern Alabama on 11 December as a matter of fact.
    The weather is chilly, but usually dry and quite nice in the afternoons.

    I do believe it is a 1968 model.
    The serial numbers changed in August of that year, and all the research I did led me to believe that yours is a '9' starting number aligning with early 1968.
    Do you live near a big city, where a proper appraisal house might be?

    I accidentally removed you as my friend sorry do not do well with new sites. I have done several things wrong ph well. I also was informed I do not have a 1968 but from all I have researched I do and the information you gave I do.And the folks at the store where I buy strings and they once sold Gibson and is a collector says I do. Some folks just can't believe such things really happen.

    I really do recommend that you get it professionally-appraised, Robin.
    It would make life much easier in the long run.
