Hi 'Tac',

Jay's info is correct to the best of my knowledge.

You have one of the 're-issue' Gibson Studio guitars. Gibson stopped making the Studio Classics for several years after Chet passed away, and then came out with a re-issue with a few design changes including the opening (hole) in the back of the guitar, a relocation of the controls, and the discontinuance of internal individual string volume controls.

Here's a few pictures of the original version of the CA Studio Classic guitar. My Studio was made in Nashville in 1993.

Gorgeous! The Best, Ty M.
