"Classic Plus models continued with bullion gold and flame maple for the translucent amber and red finishes, hot output ceramic 496R and 500T humbuckers and slim-tapered necks. These Plus versions, also considered Premium Plus models with high grade maples, were discontinued in 2002."(Robb Lawrence. The Modern Era of the Les Paul Legacy 1968-2009. p. 133).
