NGD pics coming in the next week or so. I was looking under the humbuckers on a new purchase and saw the following, any thoughts on what this might be?

It's definitely cryptic :LOL:
But seriously it's an 'Aged' 'Peace' and 'Phil' worked on it, left there for posterity's sake.

Just saw on another thread a similar thing with tape and a name also 2003/2004 guitars.: https://www.lespaulforum.com/index....-custom-limited-run-of-60.155534/post-1955738

Current thoughts: Name is the person who worked on the guitar at the custom shop. Aged is for Tom Murphy aged. Y is for Yamano (guitar was a Japanese imported model, purchased from Japan before I received it).

Changes that were mentioned by the Japanese seller; Burstbuckers changed to Custombuckers, Bumblebee capacitors added, Truss rod cover changed to a Dave Johnson product. Will supply pics with a NGD post once I get the last bits I wanted to change (tailpiece, thumb screws, etc).
