Looks like his wife/manager had it made by the custom shop for him...

"one of the newest instruments of the bunch: a dense-mahogany, blue-plaid-emblazoned Les Paul Custom that was gifted by his wife and manager, Julie, whom he married in 1991. “The plaid represents so much to me, especially in her eyes. She thinks it defines a lot of my unspoken character traits. It kind of stands for me -- the simplicity, the quality, the consistency. So she had this guitar made,” says Fogerty, who has worn the pattern since he was a kid delivering newspapers in El Cerrito, Calif., trying to save up for a $39.95 Silvertone single-pickup guitar from Sears. “When I put this on...” He closes his eyes for a moment, visibly moved. “There is a lot of feeling here. It’s a love letter between her and I.”"
