I’m picky as hell, and I’d love to find a cracking example that matched my 2008 R9 because it would mean my historic is true to the cause, but there are none that I can see that really say “yes”.
It’s all in good fun, but can anyone say that my R9 matches? Open to options here ladies and gents!
You know, that’s a really good point, I don’t how valid it is towards guitars in the sense that Gibson will still have made historics that year and people will still have bought them, and the numbers made and sold should equate; unless all the 2008’s are all still sat getting dusty on display. I...
I don’t think they are necessarily uncommon, I just haven’t seen that many in here. I’m sure they are out there just as much as any other year but I generally don’t see them. I always like it when they turn up so I can compare tops and see how a like they are.
I did, I travelled an hour or so to play my first R8, it was on sale second hand in a shop up the road. I tried a few other historics while I was there, couple of R9’s, another second hand R8, I ended up taking home the 2008 VOS, great guitar.

Also if anyone has one of these can I get a photo of the wiring please?
I’ve got this one working (sort of) but the switch only allows the fuzz to work, doesn’t cut back to a clean sound when turned off.
Digging the sound though.
That’s cool, thanks! I have been doing a bit of digging after work and it seems as though it’s from a January in the mid 70’s. There are a few wires that need resoldering but nothing major. Hopefully have it up and running tonight. Is there a following for these old pedals as I’ve never really...
Good afternoon team,
This is my first foray into this sub forum but it seemed like the best place to start.
Ditching a load of stuff for my boss at work today and came across this fuzz pedal with some family photos I salvaged for him, I asked and he said I could I have it to save it from the...
