Les Paul model identification

Recommended Posts

I have an Epiphone Les Paul electric that I purchased about 13 years ago, and I am trying to work out what model it is.

 

It has a bolt neck like the LP-100, but LP-100 has dot inlays whereas this one has a the trapezoidal inlays.

 

the neck plate has it handcrafted in Korea, with a serial no of F97110089.

 

If anyone can help me identify the model, that would be brilliant!

 

Thanks

Ben

SO YOU GOT ANY PICS? IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE LP100 HAS A SLIGHTLY THINNER BODY THAN, SAY, THE LP JR'S.

MY JR'S BODIES ARE ABOUT 1 9/16" THICK. MY FRIEND HAS AN OLDER LP100 AND THE BODY IS A BIT THINNER THAN THAT.

POST SOME PICS IF YOU CAN.

ALSO, THE LP100 HAS A CARVED TOP, NOT FLAT.

sure thing, here are some pics, thanks for looking!

 

I've removed the pickguard because of a crack, but it has one.
