A few years ago, some random band played an event I was helping with. They played and spent a lot of time around. I hung out with one of the guitarists and talked about gear and what not.. I then noticed his Gibson.. It was the body of a Les Paul, however, on the headstock it said The Gibson instead of Gibson. You can see the same lettering and decal on a lot of older mandolins.
I'm wondering, is this some old old prototype or what? To this day I still can't find any type of information.
I've never heard of a Les Paul with the ancient "The Gibson" logo inlaid in the headstock. It could be a custom instrument, or an uncommon / limited edition version. You'd probably need to provide a picture.

Unsure on this one. I've seen mandolins with a stylised 'The Gibson' logo, silkscreened. I've never seen or heard of a genuine solid body electric with 'The Gibson' logo, I'm initially thinking fake.

That guitar is amazing, but it doesn't say ''The Gibson'' on the headstock and therefore cannot be the answer to his question.

I've seen an LP that was an extremely limited run and it said "The Gibson" on it. It's not unheard of for really nice ones.

I've never seen a Gibson that says "The Gibson", but I have however seen some that say "The Paul" as nickdohle said.

Yer pretty fly for a Canadian.
Ha. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it said Gibson and not Heritage... And this was back in I think 2004 so that was a few years before the 2007 model you was talking about.
The bassist in my band worked in the Gibson factory and I asked him about it and he said he's heard of something like that but he has no idea about it.

If I can remember the band then maybe I can track him down.. It's been bothering me for the past six years!
The GibsUn?? A fake made in china?? who knows since there is no pic of the guitar it is all speculation.

The following statement is true. The proceeding statement is false.
