    The OP is correct. It was a limited run finish for the R9. I don't know what they did on R7's, R8's, CR8's...whatever. These were a Guitar Center run, and 59 of them were made in various colors, including this one:

    Guitar Center: Platinum : Gibson 50th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Sunburst Reissue Light Burgundy Burst

    If you click on the link, you will see the OP's color.

    Some runs were also done for Musician's Friend in different colors as well.
