I took the pickups out to see the markings. Under the bridge pickup it says LPCSP16. Which probably stands for Les Paul Classic Proprietary. Someone probably changed the name plate on this guitar. Under the neck pickup it looks like HS.Mike, that to me looks like the 2016 LTD run Classic Plaintop model that L&M in Canada did. Aside from the plaintop lemonburst Trad, I don't believe they came with zebra 57s.
Are you sure the truss cover wasn't swapped for whatever reason at some point?
Easiest way to find out.. take the pickups out. If it's a Trad it should say 'trad' in permanent marker in one of the cavities.
If it's a Classic, that would explain the slimmer neck.
