    Hi. Ive got a 1960 Tribute Plus Les Paul.
    When did they start making them?
    I ask because my Serial number F319656
    means it was made in 2003 in Japan.did they use
    older guitars and "pimp" them up ?

    Hi David and welcome to this place. The best resource for any information regarding guitars is always the manufacturer. Online guitar dating sites are never accurate. Contact Epiphone. They will need to see pics, including the serial no

    F-Serial Numbers on Les Paul Standard '59/'60 Models and Tribute/Plus Models

    The latest serial number system used by Epiphone has not yet been completely deciphered. The new "F" models are made in China. The new system seems to be just continously running model numbers rather than a dedicated code for year, month, and place of manufacture.

    F300000 = late 2009 used on LP Std'59/Std'60/Tribute models
    Continued around F310650~F311050 in spring 2012 on Tribute-Plus models
    Continued around F305000 in 2011
    Continued around F310000 in 2012
    Continued around F317000 in 2013
    Continued around F324000 in 2014
    Continued around F330000 in 2015
