Trans in '74, Short started in '75, as did Nashville production. Both tenons are seen in '75, I don't think I've ever seen a Nashville made LP with a Trans though.My guess would be a trans tenon on the '74, though it might be short. IIRC. long tenons went away long before the reintroduction of the LP in late'68/'69. The trans tenon was phased out and was pretty much gone by 1975 (see the original post in this thread). Everything after that (except Custom Shop/VOS) is short tenon, including Customs. Then in about 2005, Customs ceased to be made in the "USA" plant, becoming instead a "Custom Shop" model, and thus got a long tenon again.
As for whether it was made in Kalamazoo or Nashville, I'm not sure. Of course, Kalamazoo was the original, then Norlin opened the Nashville plant. Both plants operated from 1974 until 1984. It's very likely that the '74 was made in Kalamazoo - but don't take my word as gospel....
