R7BB or B7.
How high is high?
Customs are generally $1,000 or so more than Standards.

The price listed is retail. You can get one for alot less than that. Not sure of the going rate on them now but it might be between $3K and $4K.

Why prices are that high on Gibson's website I'll never know.
No, prices are not that much. Look at websites like guitarcenter.com and musiciansfriend.com. Those are the actual retail prices.

An R8 is a standard and the B7 is a custom. The R8 awill have the trapizoid inlays and no back binding. The top is maple and the B7 has a mahogany top. The finger board on the custom is ebony and the R8 fingerboard is rosewood. The B7 may be heavier as well.
