Hello. I bought this Les Paul about a year ago and was told it was a Studio Swamp Ash. I recently looked online and confirmed it is not. Now I don't know what the specs are at all. I know it's a 2014.

The serial number is 103640302.

Any and all info would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hmm interesting one..

From what I can see online... The serial number you gave is a 2014 but there was a 2013 model called a Les Paul Studio VG Flame top...

From what I can see that's what you have but theres not much info out there about them.

You should email the serial number along with full body shots front and back and close ups of the headstock front and back to Gibson Customer Service.. They should be able to let you know.

Your guitar was made in
Indonesia
on December, 2013
Production Number: 2743

if you can post the specific model (standard, custom, pro, etc.) will be able to tell what pickups. or you could remove the screws on the rings and flip them over.

I just spotted this.. Is this the right one? Does it have a maple neck? (it does look like the control knobs have been changed on yours though)

Yep that looks just like it except for the control knobs. Very strange about the serial number and year! I've emailed Gibson so hopefully I can find out what happened. Thanks!

Hmm, not really.. It happens a lot...

For instance Gibson started producing the 2017 models in September 2016... And what also can happen is production of a model starts say in your case late 2013 and then goes on to 2014 cos they made more or whatever reason.. So you have a 2013 model that was made in 2014.. not so unusual... Theres also a chance I could be wrong aswell.. I was only going by what I could find on the net, and its not always 100% right.

I myself have a 2008 Standard that was made in 2010.. go figure
