    From the stickys above.

    2001: there was a run of Brazilian R9s in the range 91203-91250 (91201 and 91202 only come up as Les Paul Classics for me). within this range, the following numbers do NOT have Brazilian Rosewood according to my info: 91236, 91230, 91220, 91217, 91215, 91214, 91210, 91209, 91207, 91206.

    Also, 911007 comes up as an R9 with brazilian.

    2002: 8 R9s, in the range 92038-92045

    2003:

    1954 Reissue, ranging from 43001-43150
    -within this range of numbers, 37 are '54 Black Beautys
    -43001-43006 are 1-pickup '54 Goldtops that went to Dave's Guitar in WI. i am assuming these got BR

    1956 Reissue, ranging from 63001-63148
    -the only exception here is that number 63126 does not exist as far as i can tell

    1957 Reissue, ranging from 73010-73707
    -numbers below 73010 either have 2002 specs (73001, 73005, 73006, 73007), are prototypes (R7:73004; LP Junior: 73002, 73003) or do not exist
    -within this range, 231 are 2 or 3 pickup '57 Black Beautys
    -26 are LP Juniors
    -73431-73438 do not exist

    1958 Reissue, ranging from 83001-83256
    -83001-83008 are prototypes (83001-83004, 83007, 83008), and 2 of these are LP Juniors (83005, 83006). 83009 is a quilt top R8 that went to Guitar Center
    -within this range 29 are LP Juniors
    -1 is a korina explorer
    -83046, 83047, and 83087 do not exist

    1959 Reissue, ranging from 93001-93674
    -93001-93006 are prototypes
    -93008 has 2002 specs
    -3 are korina Flying Vs

    1960 Reissue, ranging from 03001-03163
    -03001-03010 are prototypes (except for 03007 (not a proto) and 03002 (2002 specs)), and 2 of these are LP Specials
    -it appears that 03007 DOES have BR
    -within this range, 21 are LP Specials
    -48 are non-Historic GC '60 LPs, none of which have BR

    Gary Rossington SG
    -13001-13075 have Brazilian Rosewood


    2003

    * Brazilian boards installed from January through May as follows:
    ** of 4 3001-4 3150 35 of these were R4 Custom Black Beauties = 115 BRW R4s
    ** of 7 3001-7 3707 220 of these were R7 Customs, 4 GTs were 02 specs, 28 were Juniors = 455 BRW R7s
    ** of 8 3001-8 3256 31 of these were Juniors = 225 BRW R8s
    ** of 0 3001-0 3163 50 were G0s, 20 were Specials = 93 BRW R0s
    ** R6s and R9s Do not share with other models, so all 148 R6s and all 674 R9s are BRW.
    . Music Machine "Stingers" have Brazilian Rosewood fretboards

    Thanks CRobbins! I just did a search and found that same list on The Music Zoo website. So is it a complete list, or have there been occasional guitars with Brazilian boards before 2001 and after 2003?

    What are you doing mate, continually running line backer for Henry & the new TH Series?

    The guitars listed are the only ones that Gibson certifies as
    Brazilian Rosewood. After that, it is a moot point. If there
    are other Brazilian board Gibsons, they would be undocumented
    contraban, and it is unlikely Hank would come to your aid, and
    produce the paperwork to make them legal.

    They certainly exist outside of the above list, that is for sure. :)

    There are others that are not on that list, but that is pretty much the whole shebang.

    Frank, you forgot to detail your 2001 that was not on the same list as mine. Oops did I just say that. :D

    What about before 2001? Surely there were some over the years, but I guess Gibson didn't keep records of them?

    JimmyAce has the details on a bunch of Yamano '99 Anniversaries that went to Japan that did have BRW.

    I also had a 2007 that a BRW Board. All the rest I owned / own were 2001 & 2003 models.

    My '97 had IRW..............actually it was way superior IRW compared to what they are using now.
