    While I was doing a string change on my '95 CU24, I pulled the pups to see what was written in the cavity.

    This is the bridge cavity. Looks like the guitar was originally part of a giveaway. I'm not sure what G. P. is but it may be Guitar Player mag??? Joe Knaggs last name. The "10" makes me think it's a 10 top, but there is no 10 on the back of the headstock.

    Looking under the pickups I discovered that one of my Custom 24's was made on National Heavy Metal Day 11/11/11.

    My Custom 24 was CNC'ed on my brothers birthday (not the actual, just this year's one) - luckily he doesn't play guitar :D

    I would say the "10" means it was a possible ten top but after carving/finishing didn't make the grade.

    The Knaggs reference will (probably) be a note to the factory employees to see Joe Knaggs once the guitar is completed so it can be sent off for the GP give away, whatever that is!

    These are always fun to decode.
