These guitars feature a silver inked serial number with a year that Les Paul was alive, and a letter A through F (1980 F) indicating which of the six guitars for each year it is. These guitars were produced in the Gibson USA line as the Les Paul '52 Tribute and have a stamped USA-style serial number.
