I just bought an Epiphone Les Paul (Custom, I guess) with "Gibson" written vertically on the truss rod cover from a pawn shop for a $185! There's no sticker saying "Made in Korea" and the serial # is MR01080370. I did some research and found different opinions attributing the factor of origin, so I wrote to the Gibson Customer Service and they said that this is consistent with a Korean production code.
Hope this helps!

Hi Pete, thanks for your reply. I specifically asked about the Mirr factory, but the answer was that my serial # is "consistent with a Korean production code". Also, as far as I know, Epiphone moved the production from Korea to China only in 2002, while mine was built on Aug 2001. It's kind of a mystery anyway...

Anyway, one of the boys wants me to sell his Epiphone Casino and I am having a hard time verifying which model it is. It is blond, serial number is R99F 0936, and it says "Casino NA" on the sticker in the f-hole. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
