Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - I have just purchased in France an Epiphone Les Paul custom finished in white

I am told that it is about 1986 but i wish to verify this.

 

The seriel number is EE060112321

there is a sticker to say made in china also an inspection name or mark of QC

 

Can anyone help with providence and history etc.

According to Guitar dater it's not an 86:

 

 

Your guitar was made at the

Qingdao Plant (Epiphone), China

January 2006

Production Number: 12321

I have no clue how Epiphone does their serial number protocol.

 

Sorry.

 

Email Gibson Customer Service, they will usually help clarify information about it.

 

Not a huge issue, but none of those guitars is worth much money.

If the legitimacy is in such question, how much is the asking price?

 

Making a fake Epi (though it happens) is sorta like counterfeiting pennies.

How could you possibly make a profit?
