    Default real quick.....anything look wrong w/ this les paul?

    I have a couple more pics and the serial number checks out as 2009. Stamped 2009. Looks to me like a Trad Pro?

    Now.........is it a classic, traditional, traditional pro? Can I tell by the serial number?

    Purty sure it ain't a standard.

    Looks like a dirty classic, nice guitars, well, after they are cleaned up a bit.

    Don't most Classics after '93-95 or so have those ugly green inlays? Or did they stop doing that?

    The tuners look like locking Grover Rotomatics which were standard equipment on LP Standards IIRC.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    I'm not a Gibson-ologist, I thought the inlays looked like the green ones, that's why I thought it was a Classic. As always, I could be wrong, it happens a lot I'm told.

    yea I just went for it. kinda dumb, kinda fun.

    Got it home. Has push-pull volumes & grovers. My Trad Pro II is definitely heavier. Plays great.

    Will pull apart the rest to see what's there but I'm guessing a Traditional something.

    Looks like a Trad Pro to me. I had a black one. Locking tuners, satin back, push/pull pots, zebra Burstbucker 3 bridge/Classic 57 neck, darker creme plastics/binding.

    Great bang for the buck!

    Gibson confirmed it's a 2009 Trad Pro. Gonna clean it up and see what can happen with it. Everything works and plays great. Couple dings & dents and a spot where the binding is cracking the tiniest bit. Other than that pretty sweet. I have another Trad Pro that I like better but will prob flip this guy and go have fun with the AC15CC1 that came with it.

    and yes, it is crazy dusty and dirty
