This is called the Starburst model and was made only from 1992-1994 per 2014 Vintage Guitars price guide, Gibson states they were made from 1992-1995. I found a couple of other threads that refer to this model here:

Apparently these came in the following colors: Amber (mine), Sapphire Blue, Hot Red, Emerald Green, Steel Grey, Black Cherry, Aqua and Purple Haze. Looking at images on Google I think I'm glad I got the Amber one. Looks like mine sold new for $1600. The seller said he bought it used for $1200. I just paid $900.

 

This is the only guitar I own with the quilted look as I am not a huge fan of quilt. But this one is gorgeous and a keeper. Rock on! [thumbup]

Wow - the early 90s was a great period for Gibson AFAIK - though I've played only a couple from those years.

I am in U.K so I can only go green with envy at the price, what a steal!

So....GAS cured for now....?? B)

Mighty sweet looker. I have a 92 Starburst in a Sunburst finish... It's been a faithful companion all these years. It's been rode hard and put up wet, and saw way too many parties, but it has survived, maybe a little worse for it but not much. Hope you enjoy your's as much.. [thumbup]

Yes, the "Star" Gibbies come up here once in a while. Here's a thread with some manufacturing info from Rar - http://forum.gibson.com/index.php?/topic/26486-gibson-star-acoustic/page__view__findpost__p__364784

 

"There were six versions: the Star ('91-'92), the Starburst ('91-'92, '94, '98, '01), the Starburst Elite ('92-'94), the Starburst Flame ('93). the Starburst Standard ('93-93), and the Starburst Studio ('92-'94, '96). ..."
