Good sounding LP here:

That one is in route to central Illinios today. My brother bought it. I will have a chance to play it tomorrow.
JB was in the shop playing it....pretty cool getting to hear Joe playing it!

Looks beautiful, sounds the part. I‘ve had an R6 since 2001 chasing that sound…

And when I see ‘JB’, I still assume it’s Jeff Beck! Joe is a cool substitute though. Congrats to your brother -

I did not ask because I know about what these things go for!
My job was to help him justify the purchase :) . And try it out of course!
Current pricing on a 55 or 56 in clean shape and all original would fetch 70-80K or more.

Fun playing it and checking it out. Both my brother and I, were able to compare it to his current R6 and my 2004 CR6. I can say this ( both of us)...Gibson is doing a damn fine job with the Historics!
