2013 Les Paul Special without Les Paul logo on headstock

Recommended Posts

My parents bought me a 2013 Les Paul Special from Guitar Center about a week ago for my college graduation and I have a question for you guys. The guitar I got is this one.

 

I didn't notice it until I got home, but it seems to be missing the Les Paul logo on the headstock. Here's a picture of mine. The one pictured on Guitar Center's website has it so I'm wondering if this may have been something that slipped by Gibson quality control? I love playing it, but I'm just curious.

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure that's a GC/MF limited run. The pics on their site were probably a prototype, or one of the first ones built.

The decision to go without the LP logo could have been made after the first one or two were built. Just a guess, though.

 

Is it a gloss or faded/matte finish?

It's a matte nitrocellulose lacquer finish. I actually really like the matte finish, it was one of my selling points on top of the color itself. Always been a big fan of the desert sunburst.

 

Thanks for the input JM2112 and LSAR! I'm just glad that it's an American made guitar [thumbup]
