    Is there definitive info confirming that no Historic of 2001 other than the 38 R9's mentioned in the OP had Brazilian fingerboards?

    What I mean is, has anyone come across and confirmed a Brazilian board on a 2001 Historic other than the ones already confirmed by Gibson?

    Another question: if I understand the OP correctly, all 2003 R9's are BRW?

    The reason I'm asking is because I've come across a 2003 Murphy aged R9 and the board doesn't look like Brazilian to me:

    The quote was "R6s and R9s Do not share with other models, so all 148 R6s and all 674 R9s are BRW." So any 2003 R9 with a SN higher than 9 3674, would NOT be Brazilian. They made almost 2000 R9s in 2003, but ony 001-674 were BRW.

    But actually some of the first 674 were not BRW either, as noted.

    I read somewhere that in 2011 Gibson started to put steel bushings for the tailpiece studs. Can anyone confirm or deny that? It may have even been on this site.

    I think its safe to say this thread should be updated to 2011 and then pour the concrete. 2012 and beyond is shaping up to be a whole new era.

    Agree completely, a revamp and reorganization would be most helpful and awesome.

    We agree.

    hope the mod give this task to someone that can put it in a clean understandable way for us and all the future new les Paul owners.

    Might be over-complicated, but how about a Google Doc? A spreadsheet maybe, then multiple people can add in changes and the group and approve or correct them as needed?
