Just recently removed the 60th medallion for the standard switch cover plate, and came across this. Its a sticker inside the switch cavity with the handwriten number 13241 on it. Its not the serial number of the guitar, as thats a totally different number. Anybody any idea what its suppose to mean, and if you guys have this as well. Just wondering. I guess it’s not historically correct either (not that I care).

I have never seen that on any historic re-issue ...ever.... I have owned quite a few.

Might be new production thing? is it a 19? I will chek my R8 and see if there is one...

It might even be a contest …..maybe you are a winner!

Its a 19 indeed. So what did I win? The internet?
Let me know when you checked yours out.

I looked, no tag in that cavity...

Mine is a very late 12/19 inspection date on the warranty card....

Yours could be as stated above...?

More pics of the guitar....

Im in Europe so CME and Wildwood are out I think. Mine is from the 18th of October.
I got it from a guy who said he ordered from tfoa as a late years specimen.
As you can see in the picture of the cavity its sort of sprayed over, I assume at the factory.

Maybe these are the awesome October Halloween spooky extra special Les Pauls that needed some unique designation.

I’m choosing to go with stealth Brazilian and real incognito PAFs, trickled out into the market in extremely small numbers, just to see if people actually notice.
