Mahogany LP Studio

Hi,

 

I own a 2004 Les Paul Studio that I bought used in 2010. I think it's solid mahogany. I have the Guitar Center sales receipt dated 12/5/04, which reads:

 

GIBSON (E) LPSTWBCH LTD ED LES PAUL STU MAH BRN

Price $694.28

 

Can anyone decode "LPSTWBCH"? LPST probably stands for Les Paul Studio. Not sure about WBCH, tho.

 

Thanks.

 

PS ... Ran the serial # thru guitardaterproject.org and came up with this: "This guitar made at Nashville Plant, TN, on October 26th, 2004, Production Number: 182. Guitar

Not sure what all those letters mean, but that sure doesn't look like a mahogany body to me.

 

It's mahogany... slab cut rather than quartered or rift-sawn. I have one very similar to it except with P-90s and in worn red (the pictured one is brown). I really quite dislike the finish on mine, but it is my second (third?)-best guitar in terms of tone and playability.

 

My $0.02
