    Hi New to the forum.
    Got a question though, Can anybody tell me what Les Paul model this 1997 les paul is?
    It had a golden sticker on the back of the headstock with part of a London address on it, which has since deteriorated.
    It sports the Epiphone made bigsby style horseshoe vibrato piece which seems to give it a forever sustain, even acoustically.
    It's a pretty heavy lump too weighing in at nearly 5 kg
    Serial number i7010508, so I know this guitar was made at the
    Saein Plant, Korea,
    on January, 1987,1997
    or 2007
    Production Number: 508
    I would love to know the model name (i.e ltd edition plustop or some kind of tribute model etc)
    You see the odd one for sale on ebay now and again but not many, and all are described as lp standard blah blah something.
    Any help greatly apreciated.

    Regards Nick epi1.jpg

    It is a regular LP Standard model

    there were some LPs in the '97 catalog shown with this 'vibra-tone' trem
