    NGD: 2018 Les Paul R9 bourbon

    A couple weeks ago I bought a very nice R9. The store had nearly a dozen and it was the best of those I tried. On Friday I went back and this time noticed a couple I'd missed. This one (pictured) I liked even better so I swapped them. It looks quite similar to the one I had only it's a somewhat...

    NGD: '59 Reissue 335 and a little FedEx adventure

    I received this yesterday. I bought from Zzounds.I was supposed to get it the day before but FedEx tracking said it was delivered and "left at the front desk" on Wednesday afternoon. Problem is that there is no front desk where I live. I called FedEx and opened a ticket to track it down. The...

    Converting plain top to goldtop?

    I have a True Historic R8 plain top. I love it the way it plays and sounds but I really want a Goldtop. Rather than go out and buy a Goldtop historic, I was toying with the idea of having it refinished as a Goldtop (and redo the binding at the same time). Who would be best to do such a job...

    NGD: ES-345 Seafoam Green

    Picked this up today. I don't know why Gibson calls this Seafoam Green. I thought the Gibson name for this color was Kerry Green (correct me if I'm wrong). If the color looks different from one photo to another. I guess it's hard to photograph accurately, at least for me.

    NGD: Les Paul R8 Ebony

    An impulse buy (as usual). 8.75 pounds and black all over. The price you see below was not accurate. If it had been that much I would never have bought it. It was way less. It had been marked that high since they got it which was quite a while ago. It was actually about 2.5k less. Maybe that's...

    NGD: 2016 Les Paul '57 Black Beauty Custom

    I mentioned in the Black Friday thread ( that I'd bought a '57 black beauty custom and it was due on Wednesday. It actually arrived a day early. I'm one of those unfortunate people who are obsessed with avoiding guitars with dead spots. For...

    NGD: 54 reissue goldtop

    I wanted one of these for a long time. They're hard to find around here. I prefer them to the '56 reissues for some reason. I had to put a down payment on this one, but I was finally able to scrap together the rest of the money.

    NGD: 65 firebird reissue

    I bought this yesterday. It's a 9.3 pound gold mist poly Firebird VII reissue. Gold mist poly is, I understand, Gibson's take on the shoreline gold metallic of Fender. The "poly" means metallic, not polyurethane. It's big, but I find it quite comfortable. I'm probably going to switch out the...

    NGD: 2015 True Historic R8

    Got this on Wednesday. 8.4 pounds. Very clear tone, a bit on the bright side. I like it. Now I just need a second job to pay for it. I hope this will satisfy me and next year I won't have to buy a 2017 "Real True Historic."

    NGD: CC #12 Goldtop

    Picked this up today. Traded my R9 for it because I really like Goldtops, which is funny because I didn't used to. I couldn't understand why anyone would buy a Goldtop when a sunburst was available. But I've changed. This is 9.1 lbs.

    NGD: 2010 Gibson Byrdland

    It was my dream guitar when I first started playing twenty years ago and I finally got one on Saturday.

    NGD: 2008 R7 black beauty w/bigsby

    I bought this yesterday. It sounds great and I love black beauties and bigsbys. I'm still not entirely sure I'm going to keep it. Probably will though. It weighs 10.4 pounds but that doesn't bother me.

    NGD: 2014 washed cherry R9

    Found this at Guitar Center. Wasn't really planning on buying an R9, but this was marked at $4399. You don't normally see R9s for that price at Guitar Center, and this was not on sale, and not blemished. No one knew why it was that price. The salesman (someone I know) checked with corporate and...

    NGD: 2010 '56 reissue LP

    I picked up this today. It's a 2010 and weighs 8.91 lbs. I'm very pleased with it so far. The P90s sound so nice and fat and clear.

    NGD: '57 custom reissue

    I picked this up today. I've wanted one of these since I was a fetus. The store said it was a 2004 but the serial number is 711xxx. I would assume that means it's a 2001. Is that right? It's not a 2011 because it came a the big old style COA.

    NEW R0 -- is this tobacco sunburst?

    I bought this today. I'll probably have to return a gold top R6 I recently bought to be able to afford this. It sounds beautiful. Is this finish tobacco sunburst? On the receipt it says "faded tobacco." It doesn't look faded to me. I'm just curious.
