Wine Red 93 Studio with Gold Hardware

Recommended Posts

I got this one 1993 Wine Red Studio. with Gold hardware at a local store today.

I think it is a much nicer guitar that the Silverburst I didn't buy. Got this amp for it too!

Indeed.  At the end of the day a guitar with a headstock repair is just a broken guitar. There are tons out there that aren't.

Thanks Guys! Someone on another forum told me that this guitar is actually a 94 not a 93. He said that  Gibsons had a special serial number that year starting with "94" because it was Gibson's 100th Anniversary.

One of my favourite LP finishes. I tried out a similar looking standard 5 years back. Less common but still great looking. I think a Studio version would have suited me better too.

Enjoy! =D>

This is true...  You can tell because if you do the "conventional" SN decoder for this date range, you will soon find out that there's no 400th+ day of the year.  So you have a Centennial Gibson LP.  Killer man!  Much better score than the broken headstock mess you almost got into.  Congratulations and enjoy for many years 😄

Thanks guys! I used to have the same guitar. I bought it in 2004. It was my first Gibson and and my first Les Paul .Unfortunatly I sold it many years ago so I was happy to find this one. The one I had(below). That one came with a black case with a grey interior and shroud.What years did Gibson use cases like that?

Found out the one I bought in 2004 was actually a 2002 model so It was nearly new when I bought it. Now it would be nearly "vintage",lol.It seems funny to think of  guitars like my  94 Gibson Studio as a vintage guitar but it really does look like one now as the finish has darkened beautifully to an almost "Ox Blood" color and the gold hardware has a nice patina.
