Just seen a bunch of 2020 R9s that came in this week at The House of Guitars.They have some changes from last year.True Historic color on the backs and The Gibson Logo looks a little different.Here is a peek. Looks like a good year.

Thanks for sharing. How about a pic of the logo next to an older logo?

It’s been kinda inconsistent in 2019:
The early 2019 were brighter but they later came out with the darker back...
The binding was more yellow/dark in the beginning whereas the later ones (serial 992600+) have been lighter cream color

Even though the backs got darker in 2019 they were still red color not the true historic color. 2020 and 2015 True Historic have the same color and shade backs.

My 2017 Gibson Historic 1959 (Headstock and back color).
(For comparison only).

I temporarily removed the cover plate.

2017 R models are going to be a real mixed bag.

Many of the 2017s were re-purposed 2015s and have all the hallmarks of a TH.
