Icon34 Someday they will name a Les Paul after me...

Gibson's Custom Shop has made a John Sykes model of the Les Paul, a replica of his 1978 Black Beauty right down to the mirrored pickguard and the wear marks on the body and neck. There is also a Mick Jones Les Paul, a replica of his 1968 Black Beauty which looks a lot like Mel's guitar. I don't know what year Mel's Les Paul is but it appears to be the same vintage as Mick's guitar.

I think the Les Paul was one of John's first guitars and he has used it on just about every recording he has done.
