Following my erroneous post in July 2014 (see above), I'd like to expand just a little bit more on MAMI's Gibson Les Paul Standard. I found this out as I was... umm... trying my luck on eBay. Heh.
As pointed out by MAMI in the GGG this LP Standard is a Custom Shop model. The name of this particular colour is Pelham Blue
Gibson.com wrote: Pelham Blue was originally a General Motors/DuPont car manufacturing color that Gibson started using on guitars, and Pelham Blue is now back in vogue.
And an LP Standard in Pelham Blue that has the mahogany in nitro finish on the sides and back as hers is really uncommon.
Gibson Custom also has a Facebook page, and as the Custom name suggests, they don't make that many as they would a factory model. Depending on which year's model is being reissued at the Custom Shop, the prices range from USD4700 to USD9000. So, MAMI's LP ain't just any
Gibson Les Paul.
This photo from Gibson Custom below is from August 2012 - could this guitar in the photo be the exact one MAMI owns, if she owned it from 2013?
If you were to look at the Facebook gallery, they tend to make one offs of each colour/model. Hence, although there are other Pelham Blue LP's in the list, the exact specs as MAMI's is pretty uncommon, if not rare.
Luckily, there is another one if you can afford to pay for it - it's going for about USD4995 (buy it now price) on eBay. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
If you're a stickler for detail, the unfortunate thing with this 2014 model is that the nitro stain for the back and sides is a tad dark!
The 2014 Custom Shop model is a 1957 reish, and since the appearance of this is identical to that of MAMI's, this should be the specs (VOS/vintage original specification) for it:
Pelham Blue VOS Finish
One-Piece Rosewood Fretboard
Hide Glue Neck-Fit
Original Historic Truss Rod Sans "Tubing"
24 ¾" Scale Length
1-11/16" Nut Width
Custom Bucker Pickups
Kluson Deluxe Green Key Tuners
8lbs 10 ounces
MAMI's LP is not the Custom Shop Les Paul Pro which is also available in Pelham Blue, as hers has the 'Les Paul' decal on the headstock indicating that hers is a Standard.
The Blue Mist model has the blue on all of the guitar - top, sides, back and neck!
