Met a guy locally who was selling many high dollar guitars. Anyways, I took and corresponded with this gentleman for about a week. This morning I woke up and could not stand it anymore and went and picked it up. I am very very happy with it. I am not exactly sure or the exact year of this les paul custom shop but I know it seems to have a Vintage style bridge and not the wider style one that comes on the new ones. Here are a few pics. he is the original purchaser of the guitar and he told me he may have played it for a total of 20 minutes since he bought it new. If anyone can tell me about the exact year I would appreciate it very much.

Oooooh that is a beauty, nice find

If I am seeing the serial number correctly in the photo it would be a 2008.

Thank you for confirming the year. I thought it was an 08. It is a very pretty guitar. I have never saw this color in a les paul custom before. I have only saw the wine red translucent color.
