Gibson Les Paul Customshop DC. Serial number. Which year?


Recommended Posts


About to buy a Gibson LP custom shop guitar but I wanted to check with this forum first before buying. 

which year is this guitar? 

Is it this guitar? 




See pictures below.

Without looking up the serial number it looks like an early “reissue” but I wouldn’t suggest that being “early” is desirable in this case. The specs are like what you’d get on a USA Jr. 


This is not the same as the guitar in your link, which is built with a much higher degree of historical accuracy, one piece body, correct tuners and logos and shapes etc. 


This example has also had a headstock repair and the pickup cavity must have been routed to accept that humbucker. It might be a really great guitar, someone apparently really liked it. I would only buy it for CHEAP but who knows that could be a really amazing guitar
