It took me literally10 years to figure this out, but Tim actually has two Silverburst Les Paul Customs!
Throughout this video, Tim is using a 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom. It is V.O.S (Vintage Old Stock) which designates it as being a modern instrument built according to vintage specifications-most distinctively, the yellowed finish of the silverburst (for a detailed breakdown, check this video out)
If you pay attention, Tim has used both the regular Les Paul Custom (Example 1) and the 1979 Custom (Example 2). The differences are subtle: the 1979 Custom has more of a "teardrop" finish, whereas the modern Custom has more shading around the perimeter. Other than that, they sound exactly the same.
