Electric Serial Number starting with C?????


Recommended Posts

By the fact that you're HERE/EPI forum, I'm assuming it's

an EPI? Pictures would sure help and/or a description of

the git - LP, Hollowbody, Electric, Acoustic? BUT, the

guitar dater project sez (based on Serial # only):


Your guitar was made at a factory not yet added to the database

September 1994

Production Number: 0403

Thank you animal. Uploaded images to maybe clarify the model.


Your guitar "screams" Les Paul 100 (LP-100) model at me,

the plate on the back is the Real Deal, but the factory "C"

designation is escaping me... cannot find Factory.

Anyone else?

Here's a real twist - I went with the assumption that the"C"

at the beginning was actually a "0" that had been worn down

a bit:


Your guitar was made in


September c.2004

Production Number: 0403


Gee, only a TEN YEAR difference in production date depending

on "C" or "0".....


Hmmmmm....... Did you buy the Guitar to MATCH the CAT????

Going to say probably NOT on the "collector edition"

assumption. BUT for $100 it's a GREAT find, especially

if all electronics work. Hardshell case came with/without?


"C" is most likely a Factory code that isn't showing up

on all the usual info sites. You CAN go to Epiphone.com

and email them with this question.
