That guitar was nice for a much lower price imo. The case looked like a Gibson USA case and not a Custom Shop Case.

The bridge looks gold an unoriginal. I’ll argue if the tuners are original or not, not sure! I have seen those on that year R9 though not common but can’t remember if owner done or not. First thought it may be a 2001 and not 2011 but the inlays would be rounded on the corners for that to be so.... plus the COA looks good for 2011.

Would have to see more photos like the electronics cavity etc. The COA looks legit ....

Good guitar if less cost for it. But who knows what else is missing, might not have original pickups or electronics until checked physically. I wouldn’t trust this ad either .... good call on returning.

Here are pictures of a regular 2011 Gibson USA case, non-Custom Shop.

Also, checked around the board here and found photos of a 2011 R9 case candy w/COA and headstock serial posted by someone years ago.

So Its been 3 days since I have asked for the refund, and I still haven't heard from the seller. I have contacted Reverb and they have tried to get in touch with the seller but no luck yet. The guitar was shipped yesterday as well. :(

I wouldn't be concerned. Reverb is pretty good with protection. I would reach out to reverb and ask them if you should accept them the guitar at delivery or send it back right away/refuse it.

There was never a question of it being a 2001. The coa is 100% indicative of a 2011.

My lady and I went into a refund process for $5,000 ... everything was fine. reverb has it together.

yeah, just stated what I first thought when I saw the serial number .... not what was being discussed. The COA started in that type book in 2008 .... I was just thinking out loud. No worries .... you can always tell when I'm thinking because you can smell wood burning.
