The serial number makes it a 1968.


As far as I can tell, the Les Paul Special wasn't reissued until 1975. It didn't return in 1968 like the Standard and Custom did. Even then, it was a single-cutaway model.


It could be a heavily-modified Les Paul Junior, but only because I can't find any reissue date for the Junior. With Gibson's attitude at the time, however, and the Junior/Special being student models rather than "historic" models, I doubt they would have made one, since they already had the SG-100/200/250 models, which were supposed to replace the Melody Maker.
