    There were were a few 1993 Les Paul R9s made with the SNs 9 0001-9 0012 or so that obviously did NOT have "3" as the second SN. I think these were prototypes. Also there was a run of 10 or so R9s with Korina backs from 9 3001- 9 3010 or so in which only ONE (9 3008) had a long tenon. Very strange and exciting times for Gibson.

    I wish I owned this baby:

    I have a prehistoric. An ‘89 gold top and it’s not weight relieved, has a one piece body and weighs in at 8.4lbs. Gibson says it’s a ‘59 but I’ve never seen a ‘59 Goldtop. Also, I don’t get all the hype about the long tenon or extra 3 inches of wood. Makes no sense to me unless you need an exact replica of a 59.

    It makes more sense than bumping a 7 year old thread.

    What a ridiculous comment. Is it a crime to bump an old thread? If it not okay to bump an old thread, why are we still able to comment in it after those many years?

    It’s not even a fake of a Ace F Custom. It’s a chinese crap with 2 humbuckers that have been double faked to look like an Ace, adding that crooked third pickup....:facepalm:

    I’m willing to wager the serial number on that ace guitar looks like this or the font is similar:
