    Indian or Bolivian Rosewood?

    Sure looks like the board on my 2013 R9...which is definitely IRW. Beautiful guitar!

    Manny's Music is No Longer Standing :(

    Very sad. I went there in 2013, & the storefront was still there, but the only shop on W48th Street that was still open was Rudy's. Would have loved to check it out before it closed. Good on Joe Bonamassa for purchasing the sign & loaning it to Songbirds Museum to be put on display :thumb:

    Hi my Les Paul has Serial No 088010

    Agreed. Never seen even a fake Historic with a volute. Would be interesting to see what it actually was.

    Price Check on a 2005 R8

    I think something that has to be considered, is that in Canada, we have very little used inventory out there. As a result, everyone demands top dollar for their listings, because they think they can. It's not like the US, where there's a ton of alternatives out there, if one is overpriced...

    Neil Peart died

    Absolutely terrible to hear. Our 2nd Canadian icon to die of brain cancer (Gord Downie died in 2017). Flags at 1/2 mast :(

    2019 Gibson Custom Shop Reissues still not available in Canada

    I LOVE being Canadian...I'll take universal health care over cheaper customs duties lol! My healthcare cost in Alberta is literally $0....can you compete with that?!? IDIOT. Btw, Target left bc they were priced much higher than Wal-Mart, so no one shopped there. p.s. if a Northern border wall...

    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    I always prefer my pre-aged guitars to be immaculate otherwise :p

    Is my R8 a Fake?

    As the other guys here have said, it's definitely legit. The R8 stamp in the cavity is an easy way to check authenticity. I've never seen a Chibson with anything other than a disaster in the control cavity. Sometimes the sound is not there. It's always arbitrary when wood from different species...

    Are all Goldtop finishes created equal?

    To my knowledge, the USA models should all be fairly close. My brother has had a Classic, & has a Standard, and they were pretty much identical. The Classic, in the past, had a Buiilion Gold color, which I believe is a little different. The Custom Shop, since 2013, has used a different...
