Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Custom Chambered

Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Custom Chambered Electric Guitar Antique Pelham Blue



Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Custom Chambered Electric Guitar Antique Pelham Blue



More resonant, lighter version of a classic.

The dual benefits of a lighter body and more resonance are achieved by the craftsmen at the Gibson Custom Shop by strategic placement of the chambers that are routed from the mahogany back. The result is a Les Paul that is not only easier on the shoulders so you can play all night long, but is actually louder, with more sustain.

The guitar's '57 Classic humbuckers output the smoothest, richest tone of any of the Gibson pickups.

the 1968 Les Paul Custom has long been a favorite of players and collectors with its distinctive style and long list of appointments. At top of the list is the soothing Antique Pelham Blue finish that actually looks green because it has been yellowed by the Gibson Custom Shop's antiquing treatment. Add to that the trademark split diamond headstock inlay and lavishly bound body.

Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Custom Chambered Electric Guitar Features:

* Carved maple top
* Chambered mahogany body
* Multi-ply white/black binding on top & back
* Nickel hardware
* ABR-1 bridge, stopbar tailpiece
* 1-piece mahogany neck w/long neck tenon
* 22-fret bound ebony fingerboard
* Pearl block inlays
* Rounded neck profile
* 24-3/4" scale length, 1 11/16" nut width
* Kidney bean tuners

* 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-way selector switch

Product Spotlight: Gibson True Vintage & Modern Classic Acoustic Guitars

Product Spotlight: Gibson True Vintage & Modern Classic Acoustic Guitars
Have your cake and eat it too
Gibson SJ-200 TV

I’ve always loved classic cars. The blame probably lies with my grandfather and father, both dedicated car nuts. For my money, nothing the vaunted automobile powerhouses in Detroit, Europe, and Japan produce today can touch the vehicles of yesteryear. As a result, I’ve always driven older cars. Sure, they’re a little more work to care for and you don’t have the latest technology at your fingertips, but they’re lots of fun to drive and have tons of character and personality.

When my wife and I started having children a few years ago, my “old” (her description) 1949 Mercury sedan caused a dilemma. To start with, the seat belts in my car didn’t meet modern passenger car safety requirements, especially when it came to baby seats. There was also the issue of climate control. Oh, the heater in my honey worked great, but the air conditioning was nonexistent. I mean, AC wasn’t even a factory option when it was built, you know? It was obvious a newer, safer, more family-friendly vehicle would have to be acquired. One that possessed all the amenities that make modern travel a pleasure—for children and adults.
Gibson saves the day

Recently, Gibson has taken steps to ensure guitarists never have to face a similar dilemma when it comes to their acoustic guitars. The luthiers at Gibson Acoustic in Montana have introduced two new lines of acoustics: the True Vintage series and the Modern Classic models. Each series is made with the utmost care and craftsmanship in the Gibson tradition, but with different goals in mind. The True Vintage acoustics are for die-hard vintage players while the Modern Classic concept updates all of Gibson’s core acoustic models to deliver what today’s players want in an acoustic guitar.

The True Vintage series models are crafted as historic reproductions of some of the guitars that built the Gibson name, with authenticity, character, and accuracy as the guiding principles. The top five acoustic models in Gibson’s celebrated history were chosen and Gibson Montana’s luthiers set out to create exacting replicas of each: the Hummingbird, J-185, J-45, SJ-200, and Southern Jumbo.

The Modern Classics represent an initiative by Gibson to provide performing acoustic guitarists with all the features that make playing a little easier. The complete Modern Classic series is composed of a much larger group of guitars with four or five models in each of Gibson’s main acoustic guitar families: Jumbo, Super Jumbo, Small Bodies, and Round Shoulder and Square Shoulder Dreadnought.


The True Vintage series is a truly drool-inducing lineup of acoustics. Each one was chosen because of its popularity with today’s acoustic players, as well as its lasting heritage as a cornerstone of acoustic music. Able to draw upon a history that few modern manufacturers possess, Gibson Montana set out to make these five models appealingly authentic in both sight and sound. The choice woods and construction methods are where the heart, soul, and sound of each True Vintage model begins. Premium spruce, mahogany, and maple are used, appropriate to the individual model. The soundboard, body, and neck are crafted using tried-and-true techniques like dovetail neck joints and hand-carved braces for powerful dialed-in tone.

The finishing touches for each True Vintage model are found in details that should make any vintage guitar lover’s heart go pitter-pat. Madagascar rosewood is used for the bridge and fingerboard, and the fret ends are bound. A specially formulated amber toner is sprayed over the guitars to give them a dark, aged lacquer finish like a vintage Gibson acoustic. As a demonstration of how far Gibson went to ensure all the appointment details were historically correct, even the pickguards on the Hummingbird and J-200 models are vintage-cast style, made from the original vintage die-cast molds. Finally, each one gets set up with a bone nut and saddle and is detailed with an historically accurate orange label and packed into a vintage-style case. These are the finest Hummingbirds, J-185s, J-45s, SJ-200s, and Southern Jumbos that Gibson Montana has ever produced.
Modern work of art

What does the modern acoustic player want? That’s the question Gibson Montana asked itself in creating the Modern Classic acoustics. The goal of the Gibson Modern Classic is to creat the instrument for the modern player, yet be true to Gibson’s heritage by using a true dovetail neck joint, hand-scalloped bracing, and nitrocellulose lacquer finish on each model. Of course, with the huge stable of Gibson players around the world, they didn’t just query themselves. Player feedback was also considered in settling on those features that would distinguish the Modern Classic guitars. One of the most requested items was a set high-quality acoustic pickup and preamp system. To meet that need, Gibson went to L.R. Baggs for a high-fidelity under-saddle pickup and active transducer system with a volume control that’s tucked away inside the upper rim of the soundhole. It delivers amplified acoustic sound that’s true to your playing and easy to use.

Grover Rotomatic tuners deliver the improved tuning stability that’s appreciated on all-night jam sessions and gigs. The neck of each Modern Classic guitar also receives the new Big Sky treatment, where the edges of the fretboard are radiused for an extremely comfortable feel and enhanced playability. To complement the comfy neck feel, the string height is lowered for faster action. Each one is set up with a bone nut and a Tusq material saddle for the best of vintage and modern performance then slipped into a premium hardshell case built for the rigors of the road. To further distinguish the Modern Classics, each one has a distinct new label. Whether you’re a fan of big-bodied sound from Gibson’s Jumbo and Super Jumbo models; the familiar punchy, warm dreadnought tone; or the intimate responsiveness of one of Gibson’s small-bodied jewels, you’ll find a Modern Classic for you. Whether you love Gibson acoustics old and or new, the True Vintage and Modern Classic series are fantastic guitars.

Tubeway Army: Modeling Magic and Tube Intensity Finally Join Forces

Line 6 Spider Valve Amps

The new Line 6 Spider Valve™ guitar amplifiers finally resolve the age-old question posed by every guitarist who acknowledges both tube-amp and modeling technology as keys to great tone: Can you have your cake and eat it too? Fortunately for guitarists everywhere, the answer is now a resounding “yes.”

The Spider Valve 112, 212, and HD100 are the world’s first amps to feature an all-tube power section and a dual 12AX7 modeling front-end. What does that mean for guitarists? It means that enlightened tube enthusiasts will never again need to sacrifice the versatility and tonal range provided by Line 6’s advanced amp and effect modeling.

Just as important, modeling mavens who want that same versatility in an onstage tube amp will now find all their favorite vintage amp colors delivered with the performance and response that are the hallmarks of a true all-tube, 6L6 power section and 12AX7 preamp stage. The breakthrough design—which feeds the 6L6 and 12AX7 tubes with a Line 6 modeling “brain”—and its astonishing sound utterly destroy the myth that tubes and modeling are mutually exclusive. If anything, the combination of tube power and modeling flexibility extends and amplifies the virtues of both technologies, allowing each to shine at doing what it truly does best.

Even better, this auspicious marriage of tube-amp guts and digital brainpower comes courtesy of the two parties most responsible for the recent advancements and refinements of both technologies: Reinhold Bogner and Line 6. Reinhold Bogner earned his stateside credibility by repairing and modifying tube amps for the cream of L.A.’s guitar community, which ultimately led to Bogner launching his own high-end amp company, Bogner Amplification. Acclaimed for their rich, robust tones, channel-switching sophistication, and sonic versatility, Bogner amps have earned a maniacally devoted following among discerning guitarists.


What’s more, Spider Valve amps don’t just bear Bogner’s name; they bear his artistic and technical fingerprint on every Sprague® Orange Drop® capacitor and Premium Celestion® Vintage 30 speaker found inside. Bogner’s integral role even included specifying which bolts and washers to use. Meanwhile, the tech gurus at Line 6 have adroitly designed every Spider Valve preamp to benefit from both 12AX7 tubes and a modeling front end. The two work in partnership to augment the tube warmth and presence with a stunning array of modeling options: 12 amp models, providing a palette packed with authentic tone colors inspired by* the ’64 Fender® Deluxe Reverb®, Marshall® Plexi, Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®, and Vox® AC-30, along with many more outstanding Line 6 creations.

With simple front-end controls and a display, programmable patches and presets are instantly within reach. Tweak your tone even further with the front panel Presence, Drive, Bass, Mid, and Treble controls: this is a true-blue tube amp, and it responds like one, delivering all the analog detail, performance, and warmth of every amp model and effect.

Increasing your timbral options even further, Spider Valve sports seven onboard effects, easily accessible and tweakable via the super-cool SmartControl FX knob, which lets you dial-in varying intensities of effect without the hassle of hardcore programming. You can select up to three simultaneous effects, including Chorus/Flanger, Tremolo, Phaser, Sweep Echo, Tape Echo, Reverb, and Delay.

Spider Valve Amps come in three amp configurations, accommodating both your onstage real estate and your volume needs. Choose among the lean, elegant Spider Valve 112 and 212, with their twin 6L6WGC/5881 40-watt Class AB tube amps and Premium Celestion® Vintage 30 12" speakers (in 1x12 or 2x12 configurations); or consider the handsome and heavyweight Spider Valve HD100 head, with 100 watts provided by four mighty 6L6WGC/5881 tubes, driving a majestic 4x12 Celestion® loaded cab. Each model accommodates Line 6’s FBV2™, FBV Express™, and FBV Shortboard™; foot controllers, features onboard chromatic tuning, tap-tempo, distortion boost, and noise gate, and allows for direct-out POD® recording via XLR.

With its endless versatility and classic warmth and punch, it would be easy to describe Spider Valve as providing “the best of both worlds,” but we prefer to think of it as an entirely new world all its own. Explorers wanted.
