By stamped do you mean under the finish it was stamped or through the finish. Pics would be interesting. Early historics can be cool guitars for sure.Thanks for all of this info. I just bought an 88 LP prehistoric w Shaws. I fell in love with the flame top and I had to have it. The back of the head stock is stamped Ace Music and the inside of the pickup cavity is handwritten “Bernice”.
I’d love to try and find out how many of these LPs were made for Ace music and would love to know more of the history of this guitar if anyone knows anything. My theory is that if these were Gibson’s first attempt at re-creating the 1959 Les Paul, maybe these particular guitars that are stamped Bernice were Gibson’s attempt of re-creating a Rossington LP?
