In the summer of 1968, Gibson did something unprecedented. They re-released two guitar models that were discontinued a decade earlier,
a Les Paul Custom and a Les Paul Goldtop. Many famous guitarists at the time adopted 1950s Les Paul models because of their heavy
tones, vocal qualities and endless sustain, creating a demand for the classic body style that continues through today.
The 1968 Les Paul Custom stood apart from its predecessors in a few significant ways. Instead of a solid mahogany body, it now had
a solid maple top on a mahogany back — adding the clarity and bite that many rock guitarists sought. It also came standard with two
humbuckers as opposed to three, providing additional picking clearance. And lastly it had a 14-degree peghead angle for reduced string
tension. This set of features instantly became the new standard for the Les Paul Custom model, which has been produced continuously by
Gibson ever since.
