I'm setting up, and very lightly relicing the nickel parts on my 03 LP(Tailpiece, Tuners, PU covers, and strap locks with a vinegar and salt concoction and was wondering what some of these markings mean.. the obvious one which is under the bridge pickup is "LPSP" which means Les Paul Standard Plus. but there was a red piece of tape and underneath that it says what looks like "C0" or "60" which i'd imagine would mean the neck profile maybe? and the one I have no clue is what is under the neck pick up "WR" does anyone have an idea what some of these mean?

Yeah, wine red! As it happens I have the pickups out of mine at the moment - LB under the neck and LPTD+ under the bridge. It's a Lightburst Trad plus. No sticker, but all trad pluses are 50's neck.

Yeah mines slightly chunkier than the average 60.. right around a 59 maybe slightly more tapered.

Funny, my 80' wine red Custom has a different marking that I thought said WIRED. After closer inspection it reads "W/RED". Here's a pic:

I also have an 03 Wine Red Standard Plus with a 60s neck. I was told it was a Standard Plus from the Ebay auction in which I bought it but I always thought it had less figuring in the top than the Plus models I had seen. I will have open mine up and see what it says in there.

Shoot a pic to me of it.. Im eager as HELL to see all whine red 03 LP's on account of its my favorite guitar I own.. It took me months to find the right les paul visiting different shop's and I went to my local town guitar shop and played this through a vintage twin and bought it that day for $1500 out the door.. been in love ever since.

My 92' Studio didn't have any modell description in the pup caveties, just the colour in neckpup cave. In the bridgepup cave there is a date stamp and some mystic marking... looks like Day 4 ??.. but I'm not sure.

I'm also curious what it could mean. Was just thinking about a thread like
"show your pup caveties" ..
