    Good evening,

    I would like to ask for a little help to recognize the following serial number:

    Belongs to a Epiphone Les Paul Junior Double cutaway:

    [​IMG]

    I suspect is a Japanese one but i'm not sure because i don't understand why isn't only J and i see an "I" after J.

    Year i think is 98, as i see in many pages appears to be information about year by numbers but not from where it is the guitar.

    I suspect Japan 98...but that I makes me crazy :)

    May you help me?

    Thank you!

    Hi Pablo,

    no, not Japanese
    it's from Nov '98, probably Indonesian made
    we've seen some other similar serials in the past

    Depends on where on the globe you are...

    I'd say around 150-200 $ / €
