    That definitely explains it. I was very surprised to see them.

    New Brazilian Run

    Not sure if anyone else noticed, but Dave's Guitar Shop has a ton of new Brazilian R9s... more than I've seen all year combined, there must be 50 of them. https://davesguitar.com/products/gibson-custom-shop/type/electric/condition/new/series/R9B/ A few gut reactions to seeing these: - It's...

    WTB: Dark/Tobacco/Kindred Burst R8/58 Reissue

    I am looking to spend around $3k, give or take. That is somewhat flexible but that is my ideal.

    WTB: Dark/Tobacco/Kindred Burst R8/58 Reissue

    Sorry bud, already have 3 R9s; I need an R8 in the stable. Also way out of my budget, but thanks for the offer!

    WTB: Dark/Tobacco/Kindred Burst R8/58 Reissue

    Looking for an R8 with a classic dark burst finish. Tobacco burst, Kindred Burst, whatever you want to call it, but I want it dark. Ideally under 9 pounds, and made within the last 10 years, though I would consider older. Thanks!

    Out of everything I own, it's between that R0 and the R9 lemon with zebras as my best playing and sounding guitar, no question. But the R0 wins for looks due to the Murphy painting and aging. It's really a phenomenal guitar.

    I know, I know. I am just not a big single coil guy, in any format. I play a lot of hard rock (not metal, but heavier rock) and I can't stand the noise. I used to have an SG with P-90s and wound up selling it. But that said, I absolutely love the look of a goldtop with P-90s, so I really want a...

    Yikes, I would never use rubber hangers. These are very soft foam material, and do not damage the finish. Thank you though!

    Sorry for the delayed reply. The finish is called aged charcoal frost metallic, and yes it’s a a Custom Shop model. I’ve never been a big strat guy but this one comes with the Ancho Poblano pickups and they scream!

    Hercules makes really good hangers and supposedly they use the right materials (soft foam). Good luck!

    2004 Historic R9, difference from 2018 R9?

    That top is pretty sick.

    Please help me! I’m looking for an R9 in the 7lbs range

    What does “figured plain top” even mean? Isn’t that an oxymoron? That thing is far from a plain top that’s for sure! Beautiful guitar and I am guessing that’s from HoG? That’s the lightest I’ve ever heard of for a solid body.

    The wood is poplar, stain is carrington, hooks are Hercules locking. The boards are nailed and glued, so are very sturdy, and the hooks feel very solid. If it was drywall I might be worried but this feels safe and sound.
