    I have on of the rare early 90's reissues its a 92 and its beautiful.I paid almost 3000 for it . Did I make the right call?:slash:Instead of having classic
    on the headstock it has model. All my other classic series les pauls have
    classic on the head stock instead

    This is not the correct location for placing those questions. Please start your own thread with pictures of the guitar.

    If you had come here before that purchase, you would have learned that the first Classics up to 92 had Model on the headstock, and Gibson changed this to Classic because of fraudulent sellers passing them off as re-issues.

    Am I reading this right? Do 2003 R6's all have Brazilian fretboards? I'm about to grab my second, either R6, R7 or R8's but have a beat on a sweet 2003 R6

    So what is the deal now with the spacing between the pickups / pickup routing? The 1993-year says correct pickup routing, but 1997 says blueprint revealed wrong pickup routing leaving a gap. My R7 is from 1993 and the spacing between the pickups is 2.36 inches. On Past 1997 Reissues the spacing is smaller. So which one is now the correct routing?

    2014: Pcad gets an R9, so forever more, that is the best year EVER for Historic R9s.

    That is all.

    Question:

    I've seen the list here for the 2009 updates but nothing for 2011. Is it safe to say that 2009 3pu B7 would essentially be the same spec and build as 2011 3pu B7?
