The serial number (731648) is perfectly correct for a 2003 1957 Les Paul Re-issue. I'm guessing it's a goldtop as it's unlikely to be a custom finish. With that serial number it is definitely a CS Historic guitar not a Standard.

If you have any pictures that would help although from what you've described it sounds fine.

Enjoy your new guitar!
