Yup, that is a fine one. What year is that?

I like the idea of that book, and I have a copy. However, I'm pretty disappointed at the level of the photography and/or the reproductions of the images. I find many of them very grainy and the colours are overblown. Detail (like grain in the tops) ends up being lost.
Just got this wide flame R9 from Daves Guitars in Wisconsin. Gibson calls this particular finish 'Codyburst'. That works because my dog's name is Cody, so that's a good name for this Les Paul.
Cody and me:

Too late to post?
I'm having troubing pinning down this top?
Wow I just spent the first hour of my Saturday morning reading through this thread and drooling all over myself. I guess I should get to work the machines are calling, cycle start buttons are blinking and I'm ready.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my morning laziness I'll pay the price and get home late today.
It was worth it, Great thread, great reading.
Call this what you like. I just call it mine.
Opening an old thread, but I just got my hands on this '59 RI, and the ESLP I have had for awhile
The basic photos of this important & excellent thread are not appearing. It would be great if the OP could find another (permanent) photo host. Thank you!
Photobucket went from a free host to a paid for service.
I'll work on it.
NGD! 2018 historic R0 VOS in dark bourbon burst, flame a bit unusual...How would you describe it?
Maybe a hint of Chevron haha
Nice! That's a typical angel step. See this thread
Yes, I guess it is exactly , thank you very much!
Wow beautiful figuring
My '17 R8/CC29v has some unique figuring. She is the "ugly duckling" of that run of repurposed CCs. Definitely a prime example of a mismatched flitch top. The upper part of the body has a big knot and change in grain. At certain angles it looks like the sprayer was checking his phone, but if you look at it the other way, it looks fine.
That top looks more like a real vintage 59 burst!!!
