Brazilian Rosewood Quantities 2001-2003

Recommended Posts

I've been researching this topic quite a bit lately, so i thought i would post my findings.

 

2001: there was a run of Brazilian R9s in the range 91203-91250 (91201 and 91202 only come up as Les Paul Classics for me). within this range, the following numbers do NOT have Brazilian Rosewood according to my info: 91236, 91230, 91220, 91217, 91215, 91214, 91210, 91209, 91207, 91206.

 

Also, 911007 comes up as an R9 with brazilian.

 

2002: 8 R9s, in the range 92038-92045

 

2003:

 

1954 Reissue, ranging from 43001-43150

-within this range of numbers, 37 are '54 Black Beautys

-43001-43006 are 1-pickup '54 Goldtops that went to Dave's Guitar in WI. i am assuming these got BR

 

1956 Reissue, ranging from 63001-63148

-the only exception here is that number 63126 does not exist as far as i can tell

 

1957 Reissue, ranging from 73010-73707

-numbers below 73010 either have 2002 specs (73001, 73005, 73006, 73007), are prototypes (R7:73004; LP Junior: 73002, 73003) or do not exist

-within this range, 231 are 2 or 3 pickup '57 Black Beautys

-26 are LP Juniors

-73431-73438 do not exist

 

1958 Reissue, ranging from 83001-83256

-83001-83008 are prototypes (83001-83004, 83007, 83008), and 2 of these are LP Juniors (83005, 83006). 83009 is a quilt top R8 that went to Guitar Center

-within this range 29 are LP Juniors

-1 is a korina explorer

-83046, 83047, and 83087 do not exist

 

1959 Reissue, ranging from 93001-93674

-93008 has 2002 specs

-03001-03010 are prototypes (except for 03007 (not a proto) and 03002 (2002 specs)), and 2 of these are LP Specials

-it appears that 03007 DOES have BR

Mr Custom Admin

 

It's come to my attention that Brenton has confirmed that a members 2003 (0 3005) 60 Re-issues is in fact Brazilian Rosewood.

 

Can you add this to your above post.

 

thanks.
