• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Can anyone give me some history on my black '93 LP Studio - Limited Edition?

Hi folks,

I just acquired a beautiful black LP that I had never seen before and wondered if any of you knew some history on it.

It's a '93 Black Les Paul Studio and please take a look at the truss rod cover...it says "Limited Edition 070 0f 100". I'm wondering if this cover is real and if there are 99 other editions floating around out there:)

The guitar sounds awesome and plays like a dream. It's a heavy 9.5 lbs with an ebony fingerboard. I'm assuming the body is mahogony.

Please let me know if you have any additional info and/or history on this model Les Paul, I'm very curious if it was only offered in '93.

Thanks!
Rod

I’ve never seen that on a truss rod cover, but sure seems like a Big Al question. Love the p90s, and studios are solid instruments. Congrats and enjoy. Looks like you have cool amps as well.

It may be a FSR made for a large retailer. Note the P90 soapbars, not at all common on early 90's Studios, which was a great time for quality. Cool guitar.

The 1993 SG Standard Korina Limited Edition came with this kind of trussrod cover, only 500 were made.
This one is the number 1.
