Help me identify this Epiphone...

Recommended Posts

I picked this up for my son at a second hand store. I sounds incredible. Only problem is I am not sure what I have here. I know from the serial number that it was made in Korea in 2002. Color is trans blue. Why does it say "Gibson" on it as well as Epiphone. What makes it a limited edition? (says Limited Edition on back of head). Is this a quilt top?

That looks like an Epiphone 'Les Paul Standard' authorized by Gibson.

Limited edition is marketing speak, has probably something to do with the quilted veneer top and blue color.

For more info we need better pics.

Assuming it's your avatar picture, I'm guessing it's a Les Paul Standard plus top. The Limited Edition probably refers to the finish colour. Is Stan's green Les Paul a Limited Edition?

From what i see it 's the limited edition Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Transparent Blue (Quilt Top)...Well Epiphone before had those Truss rod covers in them saying Gibson, earlier, most of the korean made Epiphone said those on their Truss Rod Covers cause ofcourse it's a Gibson Product.and those kinds of tuners were used before...It's a limited edition cause there weren't many made as such..(the Trans Blue Quilt Top) , you've got a great looking axe there...congrats.. :D/

Thanks for all of the responces. i think I have an Epiphone Les Paul Classic Quilt Top in Trans Blue. If anyone disagrees, please educate me. Also if any one has any suggestions on upgrades that my son should think about, pass them along. (like better pick ups, replace tuners, etc)
