    Hi Tom, yeah still lovin the R9. Going to Glasgow this weekend, will prob pop into guitar guitar. Still can't believe the savings we made from GAK. Unbelievable, since then I don't think I have seen a R9 for under 3K!!! How you getting on with your R9?

    Former friend and great drummer coleague of mine Neil Greenlees lived in Crookston before escaping to the west coast. He stayed two doors away from Alex Harvey!
    I got my historic through a US dealer on eBay. Took a chance on the sound to get it at a discount when the £ was in better shape against the $. After customs got their cut it cost me about £2200. Luckily it sound great. Bit brighter than US standard. I don't know if that is a quirk of the guitar itself or whether historics are generally brighter.
    About a monthor so after I got it, Sound Control in Glasgow had a couple, and both were selling for £3k. One of them had a more uniform flame than mine, but neither of them sounded as good imo. I was in Guitar Guitar last week and they have two as well - but the prices are ridiculous. I guess I got mine just at the right time; but I do still have a craving for a P90 equipped Gold Top or 'burst :-(

    Hi Tom
    Thanks for the invite. I see from your profile that you've been around the forum a while. Also, what a great collection of guitars - very impressive!
    I suppose it's not so strange to find a near-neighbour on here. I'm in Cambuslang. Where are you?
    Cheers
    John

    Thanks a lot Tom, really appreciate you and the other guys putting my midn at ease. The guy must have been pulling my leg, or doesn't know as much about Les Pauls as he thinks. I reckon he is just miffed that I turned down his '80 Deluxe GT, which was ridiculously priced at £3000!
    Cheers

    Tom

    Hey Tom
    Thanks for the invite. VERY nice collection you have. Just got the one LP at the minute but have a case of GAS for a R7 Goldtop or Deluxe Goldtop...
    Cheers

    It arrived today, absolutely amazing. Got to do some revision now but will be posting pics tomorrow!!! From what I can tell Gibson Les Paul 59 Flametop Reissue Tobacco Sunburst Electric Guitar - GUITARGUITAR this is the same or very similar to the guitar that I got. Guitarvillage I think still has a triburst going for £3600ish, makes you wonder what the markup on these guitars is!!!

    Posted my reply on my own page....Doh!!! Cant thank you enough, sent the guy an e-mail this morning with exactly what you said. Got a reply saying that I could have it for the same price!!! To be honest when I enquired about the paul, I thought that 2749 was a really good price, but 2349 is a no brainer. It will be with me tomorrow, I still can't believe the price. Im sure guitaguitar.com and guitarvillage are selling these or very simmilar ones for £3600!!! Have you found much info on the net about this perticular model, I can only really find info on all R9's but not the limited flametop. Anyway thanks for all your help and hope you enjoy your new guitar its a beauty!!!

    Cheers for that tom, spoke to him but won't budge on the price. Seems really sad, but I'm not that good with the haggling!!! Still seems like a good price, just a bit annoyed that can't get a discount. Dunno if I should walk away, or try make him a last offer. Any hints tom? Also, what case did yours come with?
