Well, this is the Metro Detroit area. Edumacation isnt exactly a priority around here.
Just picked up on this thread. I have among my collection an Epi LP limited edition in Honey burst, had it a few years now, it also has the
serial # L612xxxx. When I first got the LP I researched the factory code and was told that the Leader Musical Instrument Co Ltd in Bucheon South Korea made guitars for Epiphone for a limited period during the 90's and their factory code was "L".(this factory does exist and still manufacture electric guitars)
Hope this helps.
My LP plays and sounds as good as any Gibson!! although I've upgraded the pups to 57's and fitted CTS 500K pots & Luxe Bumble Bee caps.

Hi and welcome here
and thanks for this great information
I've seen 'RTH' already edited the Epi-Wiki
Its gen, and i have seen this trem many times. Its quite common.
Uhhh...I think we figured that out a long time ago, actually, but thanks for playing!
Thank me later. You will have plenty of opportunities. Ayyy.
thats crazy i have one that is L606027 mine is one that was customized for sam ash trans black flamed maple top with silver pearloid pickguard and truss rod cover with gibson on it.
a freind of mine mentioned a guitar that sounded similar too this it was worth some cash if i remember correctly.
i had never heard of one with a trem.
on it until he told me about it.
would upload photos of mine but have not figured out how yet.
i would call epiphone customer service and describe what you have they are very helpfull.dont listen too people telling you its fake.
mine does not have trem.
You'll make a lot of friends here.....
Gibson/Epi Customer-Service had proved many times in the past what the don't know about faked Epis......
Are you aware that when you call those customer service, it's not a collector/expert which is replying, but a clueless desk worker which couldn't care less about you being scammed?
No, I guess not.
Had a Kahler trem like that on a Gibby SG back in the late '80s early 90's...only damn trem I ever had that would stay in tune. I wouldn't carve up an '81 SG for it these days (I got it with it already installed), but I'd sure in heck give it a go on a new Epiphone...
Long since parted ways with that SG....
Oh, and...HOLY NECROPOST, BATMAN!!! LOL
