My name is Andreas from Geneve, Switzerland. Just joined this forum. Greetings to all of you! 🍻
I have a little problem, i hope you guys can help me.
I just saw a beautiful Les Paul with Red Sparkle finish. The tick card says it's a Les Paul Custom Historic, but unfortunately it doesnt say anything about the production year. The serial number is 7 9030.
What im eager to know is, is that a '99 production Les Paul or a 2009?
I spent days googling here and there trying to find something like this particular guitar, and i couldn't find anything. I would like to know whether the color of the guitar can be considered "original" form that year of production or not? (1999 or 2009)?
When i opened the wiring cavity, i coundt find a "R7" stamped on it's body. So it must be a non R7 les paul although the serial number starts with a "7".
From what i read, there are two types of Historic gibsons, for a 1967 reissue for example, one that is considered the R7 (gold top and black beauty) and the other is the Historic 1957. Is that true?
Hope you guys can help me. Thank you so much.. Gibson Rocks!!
