So imagine going into a music store for Christmas shopping in 1960 and there sits this guitar and a burst. The salespersons states this guitar is the latest style for the Les Paul model and will make you a modern guitar player for 1961. Who wants this old style les Paul when you can have the new style Les Paul. Before the year completely finishes I want pay tribute to 1960 and the birth of my new guitar, a 1960 Les Paul Standard serial number 0-11186. The pot codes date this to October 1960 and coupled with the 6 digit serial number indicates this guitar shipped in December. So this is like a birthday.
