In 2001 I bought a 2000 R9 for $3250. I was 22 and borrowed money from my dad to afford it. Took ownership on Valentine's Day. I've had a couple other Les Pauls. Sold all the others. The R9 is my only LP and I'll never sell it. I'm 42 now.

I Grovered my 2000 R9 that I bought new. Never have regretted it. That is what Jimmy Page did to his guitars. Later I bought a set of vintage Grover's that had smaller washers. There was an era where they used smaller washers and I think they look alot better.
