No “2017 Model” under Made in U.S.A?

    Yes. I checked the search function.

    The serial number is barely visible on my 2017 Alpine White LP Standard. I just noticed that there is no “2017 Model” under “Made in the U.S.A”. Is this now a thing or is this yet another peculiarity of this special run?

    I don’t suppose it matters. I’m merely curious.

    I though I said Standard in my original post. Maybe not.

    It’s a 2017 Gibson Exclusive Les Paul Standard. Ordered it from zZounds. They’re a related company to American Musical Supply.

    It’s been fun having an unusual Les Paul Standard, one that few have ever seen in a standard model. I thought about selling to raise some extra cash and quickly decided against it. It’s a fantastic guitar.

    Gibson has been very inconsistent about that. Sometimes like this (no "model" no year, sometimes "model" and year, sometimes just the year. Sometimes the year is the model year, sometimes the year is the year made.
