  • NGD- R9 les paul

    2009 50th anni R9, this is #35 from the first batch of 500 that came with the gold coa, gloss finish and the shade of cherry sunburst is darker red and not as bright as the washed cherry on the vos.

    I got this about a week ago and i wasnt gonna post any pics around here because of the hate for gibson but the guitar is just too awsome not to share, im sure theres a few dudes that might dig it. i had a few R9 over the years and this one sounds better than they did, i sold my twin jet and used some of the cash towards it and i think i made a good choice. in 2009 gibson made some minor changes but i think it made a little bit of difference like a nylon nut, nickel plates brass saddles, different pots, slightly thinner maple cap and fretboard. the neck shape changed and theres a bunch of little stuff most people wont notice that didnt change the tone so i wont mention it.

    the quality is great and i cant find any faults, it seems like they put more time into the quality control in the custom shop than tehy do on the regular usa stuff, i have some other custom shop lesters and they are well built and sound great, now the couple i had that wasnt custom shop and that was a different story, both of the 84 ri explorers i ordered didnt look very good and had over spray and other issues and i bought a couple slash goldtops and one looked great and the other i wasnt as happy with. so i have seen both sides of gibson and im very happy with the quality of my new guitar.

        The custom shop stuff is on a whole different level IMO, I consider it the "real" Gibson...

          Nice. I almost snagged one for $3k a month ago. I ended up getting a few others instead.

              The CS is definatley the proper stuff. I've had 2 LP Standards, both were terrible, but my LP Custom was amazing and my DG-335 is phenomenal too. Decent gibsons are those pre 1969 and custom shop.

                To the OP.

                Eat a bag of dicks and die.


                I'd be **************** scared to play a guitar costing so much. I only have one guitar worth over a grand and I freak out everytime it touches anything that isn't my hands or the hardcase

                    Thats a beautiful guitar

                    I got a R8 about a week or so ago so i definitley know what you mean about the custom shop stuff. I know Gibsons QC gets a hard time on these and other boards but the custom stuff is top notch. You really cant beat it.

                    Enjoy the new Gibby. The flame on it is great

                      douchebag!
                      HNGD, that thing is SWEET! I have one in iced tea that is just an amazing guitar. Great playing guitar. At first i didnt like it compared to the lp customs i had, they are MUCH different feeling guitars. After a while i learned to love that R9.

                        You do realize an LP Custom isn't a Custom Shop model right?

                            Why do you suppose they put a "Custom Shop" logo on the back of the headstock, anyway?
