Hello

In November 2016 I bought a Les Paul Custom in silverburst. As I have no experience in serial numbers, I hope some of you can tell me anything about the guitar/serial number.

Serial number: CS 601955

I bought it new, so I'm the first owner. I bought it from an authorized dealer, but you can never be too sure.

This is my first post, so I hope I've done it right.

Thanks for reading!

Welcome Hom639

I could be wrong, but:
I think the forumula is CSYXRRRR

CS is Custom Shop
Y is the year of manufacture
X is the location of the Custom Shop (0=Nashville & 5=Memphis)
RRRR is the production rank

So CS 601955 is a Custom Shop guitar made in 2016 in Nashville and was the 1,955th guitar built that year.

Thanks for the reply!

I think you might be right about the serial number.
I tried to look at the serial number at Gibsons website before this post, but I couldn't find anything about the X location of the Custom Shop.

Beautiful guitar, congrats! [love] I love Silverburst and have a general weakness for Les Paul Customs with chrome hardware. [biggrin] [thumbup]
