  1. thats a 1991 Les Paul Custom '57 Pre-Historic Reissue. Historic reissues started in 1993 and has different SN codes than the pre-historic ones.
  2. this one definitely has a skinny neck: http://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-jimmy-page-custom-les-pau-black# http://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-jimmy-page-les-paul-custo# look for the stoptail version if you dont want the bigsby. these are limited editions though, so they will be harder to find. also, maybe try going to GC, i think they have/had an exclusive-run '68 RI with skinny(60s) necks. i don't know if they come in black though.
  3. technically he is right, by November 1, 1959 , Gibson renamed the Les Paul Special as the SG Special( yes not all SGs have the traditional SG-shape). if the OPs DC is really a '62, its pretty late for a LPDC-shaped SG. it is known that by late '61, all LP-shaped guitars were already replaced by the traditional SG-shape. but it is still possible its a '62.
  4. the plate is not attached(or nailed!!!) to the body. it is exactly what Thundergod said.
  5. nope' date=' those are regular zebras. reverse zebras have the white/creme screw bobbin and black slug bobbin. [img']http://www.provide.net/~cfh/paf12.jpg[/img] http://www.provide.net/~cfh/paf.html .
  6. Paul Mcartney's lefty burst is a 1960. i believe theres only 4 currently known lefty burst. he also plays historic RIs.
  7. no dates on the guitar itself, but theres actually a handwritten date on the checklist on the back of the warranty card.
  8. i'll just buy a '59 ES-335 if i have $40K http://www.gbase.com/Stores/Gear/GearDetails.aspx?Item=2107192
  9. i prefer plaintops too. burst,USA or historic. IMO they generally(not all) sound better than the uberflame ones
