Hope this helps!!
EDIT: Post Script: After reviewing the pictures again, that is more-than-likely a regular custom in a custom colour.

VOS is simply a thinner, harder, less shiny lacquer coat and slightly aged hardware. It is also cheaper than gloss. It can also be polished to look like gloss. The pups can be polished up using the planet waves fret polishing paper too.

the VOS treatment on the stopbar can be seen better:
EDIT: in fact, VOS is not even a lacquer, it´s just some sticky gunk with lots of mojo
Sticky gunk on hardware which is supposed to look like, and promote, tarnishing AND a thinner lacquer, with less plasticiser and the final buff is omitted. Hence it's cheaper than the same model in gloss, less work.

There were two Pelham Blue V.O.S. Les Paul Custom reissues: the '57 R.I. and the '68 R.I. It's neither. If it was a '57, then it should have plastic tulip pegheads, the '68 should have kidney-shaped ones, and reflector pot knobs.
It is this one: http://www.rockpalac...Pelham-Blue-VOS

Yes it does. You just need to look.
As TomV said back in post #4, the Nashville bridge means it's not a re-issue.
Gorgeous guitar, though.

Thanks in advance

This is a Customshop Les Paul Custom.....not a RI but built by the Customshop. It is probably not weight relieved like the regular USA models.
I would suggest that you contact Gibson with the serial number and get all the info from them.

You didn't check out the specs, I'm guessing, otherwise you would have seen this;
"...The body is (made) with strategically routed holes to lessen the weight of the guitar..."
With the exception of the vast majority of Re-Issues, from approx 1982 until the arrival of the 2013 Traditional ALL LPs have been weight-relieved in one form or another.
