While searching Reverb, I came across this truly strange Les Paul Custom that was custom ordered with a painting of a dragon on it.
The owner claims to have custom ordered it himself around 2003 and it has sat mostly unplayed and it is in mint condition. The COA does state it is a 68 Dragon Les Paul so the story definitely seems to hold true!
Since this is a ’68 Reissue, it will have a maple top with mahogany back and sides. Differing from the USA Customs from this time period, it will also have a long neck tenon, ABR-1 bridge and a slightly larger neck profile. The rest of this instrument is the same as many Black Les Paul Custom – only the front has graphics.
This is definitely a strange one! I don’t necessarily love the graphic, but it is cool to know this one-off exists!
If you’d like to purchase it – here is the link to the listing!
