  1. Just done some research, My guitar was made (as far as I can tell by the documents I've got ) 10/13/11, that would tie up with year = 1 ,being 2001, that would make my serial production number 4260, if we say production is 300 days a year, that would be 60 production weeks. ( assuming 5 day weeks) My date 10/13/11, would mean we had about 10 weeks production still to go, so my serial 4260 would have been 50 production weeks, this works out at 85.2 guitars a week. add the other 10 production weeks, 10x 85.2, we get 852 + 4260 = 5112 LP Customs a year, 17 LP Customs a day . Is that a feasible number for LP Customs ? I'd guess probably. If you know the production numbers, (anyone from Gibson) could you share them ? if not against company rules.
  2. Anyone help ? Been trying to work out my CS serial using info from Gibson.com. their example shows csyrrr Y=year r= production number. I have a question, my serial cs104260 cs yrrrr with my serial csyyrrrr so year 10 = 2010 production number 4260 ? really 4260 custom LP's made in 2010 ? or as some say year 2001 production number 4260 ? Please enlighten me someone. kind regards
  3. I have the same question,with a 6 digit serial. Anyone help ? serial cs104260 cs yrrrr with my serial csyyrrrr so year 10 = 2010 production number 4260 ? really 4260 custom LP's made in 2010 ? or as some say year 2001 production number 4260 ?

Where do I start, met new girlfriend sold pre cbs tele $180, to help buy a car to impress her, car scrapped, tele worth a fortune. sold gibson sg cherry with bigsby, ( with neck repair) gigged with it for 20 years , $800, Rickenbacker 310 70's model, sold to buy the sg $350, swapped a prs mccarty and a prs satin for an alpine white gibson custom (the one in my pics) can I get em all back please ? lol

  10. Sorry to hear of your problems, flaws I can live with playability, well that's something else. My LP standard played flawlesly, guess I got caught naively thinking the Custom would play 'even better'
  11. Thanks to all for the reply, Thats just one of my issues, I have set up many guitars, with this one I have spent hours and still get buzzing on frets. I was suspicious of the guitar. I will attach some pics for your experienced eyes and let you comment if it looks genuine enough. http://i361.photobucket.com/albums/oo54/mr_blueguitar/cav2.jpg ps, ignore the fender
  12. Hello folks, I did what many have done before me and bought a LP Custom off that famous auction site, you know bay sumfink. Anyways never had a Gibson before with the truss rod cover out of line, see my pic at photo bucket I'll paste the link. I'm worried I may have a dodgy geetar. Have any of you folks seen bad workmanship like this on Gibsons before ? check my pic. http://s361.photobucket.com/user/mr_blueguitar/media/headstock.jpg.html thanks all.
