    Here are some pictures of Isis. Firstly, look at the inlays and I am sure you will see what oddness I am talking about. Also, the headstock doesnt look like it says Gibson. Thanks ahead of time.

    Customs have that inlay.

    Standards don't.

    Do a google image search on les paul customs and then one on les paul standards

    Ciao

    Maybe a custom order. Looks weird. I could never play that. I need my inlays.

    It looks kind of flat to me, could be just the camera angle. Is it perhaps one of those Les Paul Custom Lites that happened in the early 80s? I think Gibson sold two of those....

    Looks like a late '70's custom with the 3-piece top. Headstock and inlay looks right. Could it be a second with the missing inlay? Can't imagine anyone playing it with the void that would be left if it fell out as I would think that the intonation would suck. You can probably date it from the finish. Is it wine red? I don't think it was avaliable in the early '70s.
