Maybe this will help?
Custom Shop regular production models
CS stands for "Custom Shop"
Y indicates the production year
RRRR indicates the guitar's place in the sequence of production
Example: CS10845 is the 845th reg. production CS model produced in 2001.
I believe that CSxxxxx numbers arent used before 2000.
The custom you hvae there is from 2006
Unfortunately I wasn't into Custom Shop Models up to now (moneywise), but since I'm seriously considering to get into it:
Does every Custom Shop Model have a serial with letters in it?
I've been offered a LP CS 1968 VOS - but this one got a non-letter, 6-digit serial, stamped
Enlighten me, please...
p.s.: seller says it's a RI
(sorry 4 hijackin, btw)
Naah only some models have that number. Most customs have it, and some regular USA models that somehow were made in the customshop have that serial number. Some SG's and explorers have it.
The re-issues dont have it. So a 68 RI custom wouldnt have the CSxxxxx number.
Ive played one 68RI and indeed it had a weird 6 digit serial
The thing is, these strange serials can't be validated through like guitar dater or something - guitar dater claims this LP Custom 1968 Reissue "was made 1967 in Kalamazoo"...
Yea. That website is quite unreliable
For those who may have never happened across it, here is Gibson's page on their serials;
