    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. A few gut reactions to seeing these: - It's...

    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!

    New Family Photo - Wall of Brazilians

    I’m building a guitar room and finally got all the hooks up, so was able to display all my LPs together. Just thought it looked super cool so wanted to share. It’s gonna look even better when the lights are installed. (And yes, I know I really need a Custom... soon!) From L to R: 2018 R9...

    NGD: 60th Anniversary R9 - Kindred Burst

    Just picked this beauty up from Curt at House of Guitars (awesome store). I'm embarrassed to admit how far I drove to go get it, but I *really* wanted one of these, so it was worth the schlep. 2019 VOS Kindred Burst 60th Anniversary R9. Gibson used this guitar in a bunch of their promo shots on...

    Post Your “Family” Photos

    Half the reason I come to this forum is to drool over other people’s guitars, so I thought we needed a thread like this. After doing a bunch of buying and selling over the past couple of months I finally feel like I have my little collection (if you can even call it that) where I want it, for...

    NGD: 2018 Wildwood-Spec Murphy Painted & Aged R0 w/ Brazilian Board (one of only 6 made, ever)

    This was a case of incredibly lucky timing. I learned Wildwood had 15 Brazilian R0s made over the past 2 years, so I knew it was a real long shot to find one, but I just so happened to write Steve asking about them the same day (same hour?) this became available (someone had it on layaway but...

    NGD: 2018 R9 Brazilian VOS - Vintage Lemon

    Big thanks to Curt at HOG for this beauty. It may not have the "prettiest" top, but it's pretty damn cool and unique, and it plays like butter - super resonant and light too (8.3 lbs). Sounds awesome and almost no fret buzz even though the action is super low across the board. I'm probably...

    WTB: Custom Shop 1960/R0 Les Paul w/ Brazilian Fretboard OR CC#1

    Hey guys, If anyone out there would consider selling one of their 1960 reissues with Brazilian board (there were just a handful made for Wildwood Guitars over the past 2 years), you would seriously make my year. OR, I'd also love to find a Collector's Choice #1, the Green/Moore/Franks Les...

    Up for sale is my 2003 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 R9 Historic Reissue in washed cherry finish with verified Brazilian rosewood fretboard. I'd say 9.3 out of 10 condition.

    Sorry - this guitar has been sold. Near mint condition 2015 '68 Les Paul Custom Historic VOS Reissue - super resonant unplugged (loudest of the 7-8 LPs I've owned), plays like melted butter, stays in tune better than any of my other guitars, and has that big, full, chunky Les Paul sound...

    Best Top of the Year Thread

    Since 2018 is already starting to wind down, and I never get sick of looking at Les Paul tops and finishes, I thought it would be cool to start a thread where people post their nominations for "Best Top of 2018". I have seen some absolutely killer tops this year - I like that Gibson has steered...

    2015 Gibson Custom Shop 1968 Les Paul Custom VOS True Historic Spec (Ebony Board)

    This Gibson Custom Shop 1968 True Historic Reissue “Black Beauty” was the 3rd ever made in 2015, the first year they started making them. Yup, #3 out of the factory. They picked some really good wood for this one, because out of my 4 Les Pauls, this one is the loudest acoustically. It’s super...

    WTB: Circa 2000s Gibson Custom Shop Historic Leather Strap

    Looking for the leather strap that came standard with the case candy with new Historic Les Pauls in the early 2000s. If anyone has one they’d be willing to part with I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

    NGD: 2018 R9 Brazilian & 2003 R9 Brazilian

    Well, technically it’s new guitar days, not day, because I picked up the 2018 on Saturday , but the 2003 just arrived today. I hadn’t bought a new guitar in a couple of years so I went and splurged a bit. They are both amazing guitars. I have been A/B testing them against each other for the past...

    WTB: Early/Mid-2000s Historic Case Candy

    Just bought a 2003 R9 and it has the COA, but I'd really like a complete set of case candy to complete the package. Just feels like something is missing without it, I know it's crazy. If anyone has a set they'd be willing to part with I'd appreciate it!
