1989 Les Paul CMT

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 1989 Les Paul that was advertised as a '59 re-issue body with a Standard neck. I'm thinking more it's a Sam Ash run 1 of 300 that were called the Les Paul CMT. 

However most of the ones I've read about had the ink stamped serial # and mine has an 8 digit YDDDYxxx version. I read that this was the case in late 1989 that they converted. Anyone know why or if this is even true? 

Mine also came with factory chrome metal Grovers instead of the Kluson style. Gibson ABR-1 bridge and advanced plating chromed tailpiece. Bill Lawrence HBR and HBL pickups. 

This guitar is somewhat of a mystery with the exception that Gibson said the serial number states it was made in the Custom Shop and is considered a CMT (Curly Maple Top) Les Paul. 

Thanks for any thoughts and knowledge!
