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
I know it confusing....but there are more than 148 r6's. Just as there were more than 674.
braz r 9's.....
I think its time for a 2014 update.....
I did last years...
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.
Any updates with 2014??? 2015??? 2016???
2006 - Gibson switches to Fiji mahogany.
still no update on this thread ?
Yep, 2010. My 2013 R8 is 8 3***
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?
Great post, thanks for the info!
Could someone tell me the specs for a Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul 1957 VOS Goldtop (R7) from year 2008..?
Also, what are the differences between 2003 Historic Collection R7 model??
