    Mystery Les Paul Standard...

    Hey all -

    I am avid LP Collector. I've seen and study these things compulsively. I just got one that I can't put my finger on exactly what it is - but maybe I'm over thinking it. Everything on it is original except for the knobs and bridge (which I replaced, but still have)

    1982 Standard
    Shaw Pickups
    Original Tuners
    Ebony Fretboard
    Feels like a '58-'59 neck
    Ebony Finish
    (Not original knobs)

    I've never seen one of these in black, but I have a small feeling this may be a part of the Heritage Series from the early 80's? Anybody ever seen one of these?

    Thanks for any info!LP1.jpgLP2.jpgLP3.jpg

    not sure those are the original tuners. fretboard should be rosewood.

    Tuners are original. Fretboard is Ebony.

    Ebony fretboard is throwing me off. What about a routed Pro Deluxe?

    But I could be wrong.
