From the SN alone, it appears to be a 2003. Gibson quite frequently used the first and fifth number of the serial to tell you what year the instrument was built in. But this completely depends on the model/ where the serial number is located/ if it is stamped, embedded, or located inside of a hollow body. If you can post a picture of the guitar and the serial number that would greatly help.
I don't know what the guitar is, because that serial number is not recognized...but according to this site: http://www.guitarattic.com/Fender%20Serial%20Numbers.htm
the S serial numbers were US made in 1979. If a legitimate guitar, it could be worth a fair bit, as '70s Fenders are becioming much more popular.
Your guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
August 22nd, 1991
Production Number: 30
As for the wood generally les pauls are made with a mahogany body and a maple top. unless your studio is a studio lite, in which case your guitar would of had a chromite block of wood in the center to lighten it up.
