ObG Reissue models, 59R and 57R until when?

Post by Joop » Tue Oct 20, 2020 6:13 am

It is generally stated that these Reissue models were made from late 92 until 95. You know, the ones with the space between the year digit and the rest of the serial number.

I recently saw a 57R Custom Reissue with a Fujigen serial number dating it to January 1995. That was a first for me. :o

Does anyone know when they stopped making these Reissues? Was it late 1995 or early 1995? What is the oldest/highest serial number anyone has (seen)?

Thanks but I already had that information and it doesn't answer my question. Until what time in 1995 were these top of the line Les Pauls made?
