Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the guitar. Adding one at a time with a brief description works best.

Let me know of other marks; Electric Solid Body, Made in usa stamped on headstock, Les Paul Classic wording. Let me know where the serial number is *****; impressed into back of headstock, ink stamped or decal on the back of the headstock, or a printed label in the soundhole. Let me know if it has a model number.

With just the serial number and no other info, yours was made at the Nashville Plant in Tennessee on June 20th, 2006. Seeing pictures and knowing some of the other info I asked for will probably confirm that information.
