    Iím not aware of any volutes or three piece necks or sunburst finish in 69.
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    The myth :The most disturbing thing about buying a fake Les Paul is how my research after the purchase is received by Forum members ??? 2020

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    The first 3 digits are 580***

    So with the ďMade in USAĒ are after 69?

    I saw this at Gibson Website:
    1969 580000-580999

    The "Made In USA" along with the serial number indicate that your guitar was made in 1974-1975.

    My old Custom, serial 417429, looks the same, and is a Twentieth Anniversary from 1974.
