Yeah, I already know this part, original owner said he purchased in or about 1992. What I did not know is whether or not this was before Gibson took over. But the post I found on the other forum which I copied here upthread a bit seems to answer my questions. These are three ply Maple-Mahogany-Maple and the year (1992) seem to point to HHS era. So now, what exactly is the HHS era anyway? What does HHS mean anyway?
