The factory code AC doesn't seem to track in the data base, when you have a 2 letter code the first letter A (unknown) would usually indicate the factory the second letter C could indicate China. This is most likely a LP-100 Studio built from 93 to present at several different factories and would have a slim mahogany body and a contoured Maple cap. Being manufactured in 2005 and having a nut plate inscribed "Les Paul 100" it could be QingDao built. If the nut plate said GIBSON it could be a LP-100 Studio built in a few other factories in Korea, China or Indonesia.

These had a rep of having very good playing bolt-on necks.

Also there were a few LP-100 Standard's built in Korea with an Alder cap for the Japan market.
