I think in "American Guitars" by Tom Wheeler' date='1958 was the first year the les paul was called the standard model. Great lookin explorer with the black pickguard spud!Stan.[/quote']

 

Nonetheless. Only the V, Explorer and Moderne were actually introduced in 1958. A change in nomenclature doesn't really count. Believe me, if the LP Standard was having its 50th anniversary we'd sure as heck know about it; there was some kafuffle to this effect in 2002, including an Epiphone LE which I believe had an image of Les Paul on the backside.
