Help needed, please. The sn is F6, so Fine factory, Korea 1996. I don't know if it's a Translucent Amber or something else. ‘Kluson’ style tuners w/ green buttons, ‘Limited Edition’ on headstock. TRC reads ‘GIBSON’. Pickups are not stock. I'm not sure what the back wood is, doesn't look like mahogany to me. In the pup rout, it looks like a body wood, cap wood, and veneer. That's about all the info I've got, Hopefully the pics will cover the rest!

Quilt top?
yep, the (flame) Plustops came later, around 2003
(the open coil HBs were standard on the Classics)

edit
here is a page from the 1995 catalog, could be a standard with flame veneer, too

The QT makes sense, as it does appear to have a veneer. It's a ‘weird’ grain those; it's not really flame, but not the typical quilt either!
