Hello from The Netherlands.

I recently bought a Epiphone Les Paul with 3 pickups and I have a hard time dating this guitar. First I wasn't really sure of where it was made, Japan or Korea. But it's most likely from Korea. But I'm also having trouble dating this guitar. It looks pretty aged to me, something I haven't seen like this on an '96. I was hoping that anyone over here could help me out with this.
Here are some pictures:

It's a 7 digit number and looks to be pre '99, so that rules out Japan. TRC also looks like Korean. It's probably made at Fine Guitars (Korea factory), 1996, June, unit 887.
