Trying to figure out what year this is...


Recommended Posts

This is the serial number: U5010234


Can I get any information on the guitar from this?


It's a les paul and I assume a Gibson, but I guess it could be epiphone... my father called me to ask for help and just gave me that number.


Thanks in advance!

It is an Epiphone.


And to answer your original question' date=' the "U" means the Usung plant in Korea, the "5" means either 1995 or 2005 (99 percent sure it's 2005) and the 01 means january.[/quote']


Not to be nit picky, but you are correct to say it is a 1995 LP. If it were a 2005 the serial number would be: U0501....


So in closing, it looks like it is in great condition for a 13 year old guitar.


Good Luck
