It's an Exclusive run which means it's exclusive to whoever offered to pay for the run. No other stores are able to buy from that run if they're in the same sellers market. This is why you don't see Tran Pro's selling at Sam Ash, Zzound or AMS. They have all haf their own Exclusive Run's in the past and present though.It's weird because I can't see them in the USA stores, only in the European ones.
I've got to more expensive LPs including a R7 and this plays and sounds as good as them.
As I said earlier I tested some Traditionals, Standards and some Historics.I didn't buy the Classic because is cheaper(if you don't soud good in a 2K guitar it's not the guitar), I bought it because it has the features that I want on a LP, I don't like flamed tops and most historics have huge necks which is a deal breaker for me.
I was very critical toward 2015 Gibson guitars but this year they are doing a great job!!
Edit: USA store selling them:
Gibson Exclusive Limited Edition Les Paul Classic with Case
Foreign markets are the exception though. They aren't in a competing market so they are able to buy up some of the overruns occasionally.
