For those contemplating a les paul, don’t believe that custom shop means anything. I bought a 56 reissue custom shop gold top online. The gold top has obvious milling/finishing issues and they couldn’t care less. The case was also very shoddy, and I think I may get a replacement for that. We’ll see. My advice? Don’t buy a guitar online. Also, don’t buy into the vaunted “gibson custom shop” bullshit. Hold the guitar in your hands and inspect it carefully. Reputation means nothing anymore. Even for iconic brands.
I recently purchased a 2005 68 Reissue LP Custom and everything checks out on it. The only thing that has me freaked out is the assymetrical top. Check it out and let me know your thoughts please. I’ve checked everything and it is legitimate, however I just realized the symmetry on the top is crooked, could this just be a flaw? serial: 052658, Weight is correct, Joint is correct, inlays are correct, Gibson Logo is correct, Truss Rod cover is correct, even the internals are correct, Grovers are correct, Bindings are good. I’ve just not seen a top like this before. The line in the middle of this top exits between the G and B string. Every Gibson I’ve looked at exits between D and G.
