Recently I came across a very rare (Weird) LP, I am quite a noob to this, so I hope anyone can help me to ID this guitar. Seller claimed it's a limited model, but it's 05's guitar, can't find profile anywhere.

Gibson official email response a bit slow, can't wait that long.

Thank you!

Here are the pictures.

I still cringe every time I see someone lay a Les Paul down on its headstock like that.

I wonder how that would look with normal plastics on it.

Looks like a Les Paul from a black and white movie. Interesting.

I also hate seeing Les Pauls rest on their headstock. Please don't do this.

This is very rare.

There were two well-known Les Paul Studio's in Platinum that look similar.

The first one has no fingerboard inlays and matching platinum headstock:

Then there's the one with black headstock and trapezoid inlays:

This is neither of the above because it has the dot inlays.

This one is the Gibson Les Paul Studio Baritone in Pewter Metallic. It has a longer neck than regular Les Pauls:

No structural issues with laying a LP on the headstock. It already has probably has 10-20x the force as that being exerted on it due to string tension.

Of course you could step on it when its down there.....but at least its safe from headstock breakage due to a fall if its already on the ground.

Edit, just weighed under the headstock of a 8.5lb LP in the prone position......3lbs. So its more like 100x the pressure for strings.

So the one in question is 24 frets. Must be a baritone?

String tension for Les Paul is 97.5 lbs for 10-46's in Standard Tuning.
