Selling my 2015 R9 True Historic specs Gibson Les Paul 1959 Reissue that received a Historic makeover by the renowned Brian Monty:

Introduction (skip if in a hurry):

My instruments were both bought from Gregor Hilden, a well known...

I know the differences between both on paper but wanted to know if anyone on this forum has actually tried both guitars and could sum up their experience. Would you say the difference in price is...
Hey there. I'm currently trying to find a True Historic 59 LP and would like to trade my 2016 Historic Standard 58 Iced Tea and a 2015 Fender Strat 56 Heavy Relic in black.
I also might consider just trading the Fender for another LP Reissue/Custom, Martin 000 - 28/OM28 acoustic.
