Gibson LP Serial number with only 5 digits?!?

Hi folks,

I own a Gibson Les Paus Custom 1960 that is supposed to be 'roundabout 8 years old. So following the Gibson page it should have a serial number with 8 digits. but on the back of its head it only has 5 numbers. It looks like this: 4 30XX - There is a space between the first two numbers. Can anyone please tell me, why it looks like this and how to read it?

Thank you

Your Les Paul is a 1994 model. The 8 digit serial numbers are correct for most madels, but on the Classics and Heritage models, the 4 digit number is used to replicate the serial number scheme from the 50's and early 60's. Example: I actually owned a 1959 Les Paul Std, S/N; 9-0931. The first digit (9)indicating the last digit of the model year (1959), and the last four digits indicating the sequential serial number for that year's production run. By this formula, you find that your Les Paul is 1994 Classic. This is also supports your estimate that your guitar is about 8 years old. I have a friend with a 1989 58 reissue korina Flying V with the same vintage type 5-digit serial number scheme (9-XXXX).

Re: Gibson LP Serial number with only 5 digits?!?

HISTORIC '50s SOLIDBODIES, EXAMPLE: 7 1001 (1957 Goldtop)
-the first digit represents the year being reissued (1957)
-the 2nd digit represents the year the guitar was made (2001)
-the remaining 3 (or sometimes 4) digits represent the guitar's place
in the sequence of '50s solidbodies produced that year.

How many Gary Moore signature Gibson Les Pauls were made?

Hello,

I own one (and I really love it!), but I wasn't sure how many were made. I heard 500, my serial # ends in 403. Does anybody know how many were produced?

Thank You,
Michael Kelley

I have one also and it is #02360349, which would make it a year 2000, 236th day of year 2000, and 349, which I'm not sure about. They made them for more than one year is about all I have found out. I also would like to know what kind of Burstbuckers are in my Gary Moore model. They seem to have less output, so I'm guessing that they are #1 and 2, but I could be wrong.

Guitar Comic

Um, quick one really - I've been working on a guitar themed comic - viewable at http://www.Guitar-Warriors.com - I'd be interested to get some feedback. It's not got to the guitar side of things in depth yet, but, I assure you - these people will be forming a band! JDT.

Line-6 Guitar Port.

Is anyone here using the Line-6 Guitar Port? If so, what are you using it for and how do you like it? I'm interested in getting one, but first, I want to talk to someone who uses one. Thanks.

Re: Line-6 Guitar Port.

I bought mine about 3 months ago. I bought it so I could play at any hour and not bother anyone. Plus, I was intrigued by the online content. I currently have a subscription to the on-line service but it would be worth having even if you don't want to fork out the $8 a month. The first 2 weeks I had it I was up till 2 in the morning every night playing with this thing even though I had to be at work every morning. I haven't got this much use out of a guitar product in a long time. I also have a Digitech RP300. It's a good practice tool too but the amp models on the Guitarport blow away the Digitech. The Digitech thing does have some fun effects and an expression pedal that works with them such as the YaYa and the Wammy. The guitar port has all of the basic effects. And they sound pretty good. This is a very good way to learn about how different effects work and sound without spending $1000 on pedals to find out. Anyway, song selection on the web site is a little thin but enough to keep me busy for the time being. If you can find songs you like that are transcribed online, this thing cuts your learning curve by orders of magnitude. Then once you learn the song, it's super cool to be able to play along with just the backing tracks. I also love to rip my CDs into the thing and play along. Can't crank the stero and the amp a 1:00 AM. The tone library is hit or miss for me. Sometimes they sound pretty close, other times not even close. In any case, I've always been able to manually tweak one of the amp models to my satisfaction for any song. I have a Fender American Standard Strat and Epiphone Les Paul that I use, and they both sound great through this thing. My only amp right now is a 20 year old Crate G60-GT. I have a hard time listening to it after using the Guitar Port. In any case, I use the thing every day and have not regretted the purchase. Can't say the same for the Digitech RP300.

Re: Line-6 Guitar Port.

I just bought a Guitar Port from ebay. I'm slightly suprised that it only seems to have ONE TRACK with which you can play-along with (A generic heavy metal riff in eminor)
do you HAVE to sign-up to get more tracks or what?!

are you serious?

Re: Need help with guitar buying

Darrell,
US quality is first. As for price, you really do get what you pay for, with some exception. Go ouyt to ebay or to http://www.instrumentexchange.com/search.asp?pid=41&catid=131&scatid=496. You'll quickly get a good idea about what is fair. Be sure to note precise model #, country of origin, year, and any damage to the instrument.
Unlike cars or other expensive products, guitars hold their value rather well (or even appreciate) if they have not been abused. Happy playin!

GuitarPro4 question (not to do with cracking it!)

Is anyone able to help with a problem that's bugging me? In GP4, you can adjust the tempo "coefficient" to eg 0.5, 0.75, 1.25. What I can't see is how to set it back to a factor of 1.0 afterwards! Am I missiung something obvious here?

Thanks in advance.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN SH 5

i am wanting to buy a new humbucker for my washburn dimebolt 333 and was thinking about the sh-5. i am wanting something with a very nice clean tone and sustain and when i hit the distortion it must sound good also, but i am wondering is there any other pickups out there that people might recommend that are better or prefer

Re: SEYMOUR DUNCAN SH 5

You've made a good choice.Output is approx. 14k ohms.I love the tone,even when they get old.Eddie V. used these pickups back in the day.Check Guitar World mag. '80-'81.

Re: SEYMOUR DUNCAN SH 5

You're very close ZAK. Of course pickups are a subjective thing, but I can tell you this: 6 of my 16 guitars have the SH-6 in the bridge position...this is not by accident.

Humbuckers?

I've been playing a Fender acoustic for a while now and I'm thinking of getting an electcric. I'm thinking of something like the washburn Idol WI65 cos it sounds realy cool on the demos I've heard. The problem is I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes 2 an elctric. Whats a Humbucker, Whats a Seymore Dunkan Pickup and whats the difference?

Re: Humbuckers?

Humbuckers are more crunchy and they sound a little bit heavier and gtrittier than single coils.( single coil pick ups)

Baritone

Sound a bit stupit but what is a baritone Guitar ?

Re: Baritone

Hi,

A baritone guitar is halfway between a standard guitar and a bass guitar. It ususally has a scale or string length of 27 or 28" and is tuned a fourth below a standard guitar. I'm a custom builder in PA and I build them (as well as anything else you want) to order. They have a beautifully resonant and distinctive sound.

my f*cking ibanez

I bought an ibanez rgr 320 a year ago.. and I got to say this.. it sounds terrific.. but it sucks because of the Floyd Rose Low TRS Tremolo.. f*ck man.. I can't maintain it tuned.. it's the worst crap I've ever seen.. oh why didn't I bought a no floyd guitar.. shit man.. i've already wasted a ton of money trying to fix this.. bah!

Re: my f*cking ibanez

GET IT SERVICED!! As you may know,you CAN'T just pull off the strings and slap new ones on there.
There's a certain way to it,so the string tensions match and stabilize tuning.
I usually change one string at a time,starting with the low E string.
Good Luck
