    Great guitar and as you mentioned, it is a good price, even unsigned!

    Funny though, I have an '11 and mine didn't come with a shroud. Wonder why that is?

    Yeah, hadn’t noticed the net feedback. I don’t buy from anyone u dear 98% ever. That comes from experience.

    Sorry about that.

    I’m not entirely sure of the case variants but have seen the shrouded version with gold Frampton Signature on it. Obviously yours was different in 2011.

    Mine has a Lifton reissue Custom Shop brown case from 2015. This is the one I have...

    I really like the Lifton case. Mine's just the regular Custom Shop case:

    Not the best picture of it, but...

    Ya know, looking at it again, the S/N doesn't seem to be right for a 2013? Mine as I mentioned above is an '11 and the S/N is 653. This one being a '13, has an older S/N. Might be just me, but that doesn't make sense?

    It looks better in that burgundy liner you have in my humble opinion.

    Yeah, that ad is wrong .... 314 would make it much earlier than yours. Maybe 2004-5? I saw a 2008 in the 500s on Reverb. I can see why their feedback isn’t good.

    Also they listed it at https://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-peter-frampton-les-paul-custom-2013-ebony

    Which has the original case style with shroud. It is an older than yours version as you’ve speculated.

    Maybe so, but I still like the look of your's. Now, if they could make the Lifton case with the burgundy liner, we'd be in business! :laugh2:

    I think that's about right?

    That would also make it an ebony board and not richlite.

    ... and the gold signature shroud from the early ones! In burgundy instead of black.
