Re: Strange Gibson Les Paul
I have a Gibson Heritage '80 Standard Les Paul. They were some of the first reissue type LP's. Mine also has the two line serial number. There were two models, the Heritage Standard and the Elite. The Elite had an ebony fingerboard and fancier top woods. (Burl maple usually.) I don't know if the Elite had gold hardware or not. Maybe your guitar was a custom Elite? It's Gibson, so anything is possible. I once saw a Heritage '80 Gold Top.
