What breed? What kind of piggy is my Mr. Scribbles?

I recently got a guinea pig from Petco as a gift from someone. I've never seen a guinea pig that looks anything like him--nor can I find any like him on the internet! I think he's an American/English type cavy but I'm not sure, and his colors are so unique! He's gray and an orange/gold color. Can you help? Do you know what kind he is? Is he rare?
These aren't the best photos but you can see his color really well, despite the blurriness in the front they're clear in terms of colors.
Thanks!
(not sure how many links I can post...?)

By the way his name is Scribbles, and he's 7 months old and 610 grams. He's put on over 100 grams since he's been with us, which is just over a month.
 
He's an American short hair and is very cute. I think his coloring makes him a Lilac.
 
Oh yay! Is his color kind of rare-ish? I've never seen one quite like his colors! :eek:
 
(and I too find him adorably cuddly and snuggaly and just all-around cute) :)
 
Lilacs ideally have no pigmentation in the ears or feet and he has some other pigmentation mixed in. He is a cutie!
