I don't know, but very nice!
Maybe a one off run for a specific retailer?

You can send the serial number to Gibson customer service. They are generally pretty quick answering.

The inlays look green in the picture like some of the classics.

Yellowed inlays and stamped serial # starting with 08 = 2008 Classic.

It's not a Standard.

Looks genuine but it's got different parts mixed together or something.

I'm not sure of the year, but it looks like a Classic to me.

It is a limited run of the Classic...it was called Classic Premium or even Classic Custom before the release of the actual Classic Customs...very nice guitars

If that was a Classic, wouldn't it say Les Paul Classic, rather than 'Model' on the headstock? I thought it was only the early 1990's Classics that had that.

No, by '08 Classics went back to "Model" on the headstock.

Ah, right. Thanks for clearing that one up. So this is a 2008 Classic.
