    Hi All,

    My 1999 R9 is up for sale. This is an EXCELLENT guitar. 100% original including the great 57 classic pickups. It comes with the black Gibson Custom Shop original case as well.

    The guitar is a conservative 8.5/10. Not a closet queen, but nothing outside of general wear on her. It is 3 steps from MINT.

    1) A small pencil tip ding just above the pickup selector switch. Nothing through the finish, but it's there

    2) Some "wall hanger" wear on the head stock lacquer. Again, you have to be within a foot of it to see it.

    3) Some ever so slight and not photographable "button" marks on the back. NOT BUCKLERASH! Just some slight, right light marks.

    No fretwear, and she weighs an ideal 8.52 lbs.

    It will be professionally packed and shipped fully insured UPS ground.

    I am including a link to the ebay ad here so you can see 2 of the 3 issues I am speaking of.

    $4200 SHIPPED AND PAYPAL'D!

    I can be reached at 810-923-8297 from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. E.T. 7 days and my name is Jon.

    I have it at $3999 shipped and paypal'd. That's $120 in PP fees AND at least another $100 in shipping by the time I insure it and ship it. So $3780.00 for a 99 in this condition....I didn't think that was to bad. But, PM with an offer if you'd like. I'll be happy to look at it. Plus you are in Mi. I see, so maybe you can do a local pickup. If I don't have to pay for shipping, you don't either.

    I think it's a very good price for that beauty. And if I didn't think so, I still wouldn't post it here for everyone to see. That's bad manners.

    This is a great price for this guitar especially since the fees are also included. One of the tops deals on the forum right now for an R9.

    Awesome guitar and a fair price.

    I doubt that butthead is seriously interested (take a look at that sig), just a tire kicker D bag. :laugh2::thumb:

    Thank you for the support guys. Yeah, it's kind of a bummer when someone drags down the thread. I never did receive an offer, so I guess it was WAY too expensive. :)

    No worries man. It's just etiquette around here that you don't make negative comments on someone's thread. Apology accepted, I was just stating a fact as far as the thread goes.

    Just for future reference, it's best to keep those kinds of comments to yourself. If you think something is priced too high, PM the OP and make them an offer. The worst they can do is say no. Most people on the forum here are pretty knowledgeable about the things they are thinking of buying or selling and know what they are worth. Sometimes people do list some things a bit high, but remember, it's THEIR guitar. It may be a case where they don't REALLY want to part with it, but if they can get X amount for it, they would do it. You just never know. So, again, no problem and thank you for the apology. :)
