    Good day Les Paul aficionados, I'm having difficulty finding information on my newly acquired Epiphone Les Paul Limited edition MIK. The guitar is a custom color I have not seen on any other forum or website. The serial number is unique and unidentifiable, using traditional nomenclature the guitar would have been made in the '60s although Korean built guitars did not start at least full production wise until the late 80's early 90's. I'm posting here to see if anyone has come across a similar guitar, or may have more information in regards to the year and or color/model. The guitar sounds great and has a nice weight to it. I'll include pictures and look forward to replies. I have searched the web for a similar guitar and am yet to find one, so please spare me commonly found and open source identification techniques as I have researched the product extensively. Thank You for your time,
    Carl Compton

    Thanks Paruwi, the link actually worked once. Would this be considered a custom color?? I don't see it on their list of flake colors nor can I find one similar. I'm thinking champagne flake
