    The GOTWs do not have unique serial numbers- they are just numbered along with all the other Gibson USA guitars. The 590 is simply a production number.

    No problem. I wish they had individually numbered the GOTWs- but oh well.

    If you going to get one here's a couple of things u should know... It's chambered, and top heavy maybe because of the Grovers.

    here is a few pics of mine:

    Grovers are a brand of tuning machines. Some consider them 'the best'. They are definitely good.
    I have them on my Epiphone Flying V, and they are okay, but I prefer the 'look' of the Kluson-style tuners.

    If the Grovers make the guitar neck-heavy, you can change the tuner knobs to pearloid or ebony ones. It makes a big difference---the chrome knobs are solid, and they are surprisingly heavy.

    I see you've got another Les Paul (small visible piece, on the left):naughty:
    how would you compare that one with GOTW 20?:hmm:

    I'd like to hear you general comparison and then how GOTW is good for heavy metal:lol:

    thanks ahead!!!

    the other one u see on that picture is a 2006 LP Standard with 60's neck, the GOTW 20 is lighter since it's chambered but the neck feels better , to me at least, because of the 50's neck and the satin finish makes it very fast....the pickups are EMG's 85/81 and you either like 'em or not....I like them a lot.

    Also the pickups have the quick connect cables so when you are restringing you can swap with other emg's or maybe something like Duncan Blackouts, by just unscrewing the pickups rings...Great guitar for metal and this is what it was made for, but also if you roll back the volume on the neck pickup you can get some nice warm bluesy sounds.
