    image.png image.png image.png image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Man you guys are baaaad influences. I followed up my first Gibson purchase this week (2015 LP Jr.) with this beauty. Got a great price from Martin Music in Memphis. Shipped yesterday, arrived today. These guitars are works of art! I'm truly speechless. I'll add a few pics from me and some from them, as theirs are nicer.

    I recently got back into the club with a new R8. I've been to busy playing it and working to take some proper photos outside.

    Try to get some of yours outside in the sunlight. To show off that grain!

    Congrats on the beauty.
    How was your experience with Martin Music? I was eyeing at something from your inventory a while back.

    The experience was smooth. Feel free to PM me for more info. I wouldn't hesitate to buy anything from them.

    Congrats! I got a '16 R8 last year and I think they are just so good. I son't know if it's not having the rubber on the rod or the hide glue or what but it sounds so much better than the '01 R8 I had. Even in the fit and finish, it's just a work of art compared to my earlier historic. I think these recent ones are super super good. Enjoy that thing!

    That flame is great.....its got a dash of everything in there. I like the little bit just below the knobs, and on the same line on the other half of the body.

    Nice! If I had that one it wouldn't be my 1st Gibson but it probably would be my favorite! Big time congrats on that beauty and have fun playing it!

    Too cool, Congrats!


    That's exactly how I feel about my historics (R6 & two R8s).

    Welcome to the historics club. Have fun with your new guitar.
