Well now this is just a feeler and if the interest is so so its a nice enough guitar to keep.

2014, Lemon Burst R8 Les Paul, Almost New, playwear and some worming on the backside. Other than that its near perfect. Custom Buckers original Gibson

Amazing top, Aniline dye to back and side, nice Fret board Gloss model, light weight and its a low serial. Looking to trade for a Historic Reissue of some kind with a larger neck. Trade Value is $3600
Straight up sale $3500

Try me...

anyway pics for your drool pool.....

Since you mention it, do you have a neck thickness at the 1st fret? Lovely R8 that looks nicer to me than many R9s!

I think the neck is

.920 or .917 at the first fret, very R9 in feel, I like them a bit larger. I can get better measures at home.

My 2009 R8, is huge in comparison also the 2011 R9 is a better fit.

Yep I know better
:naughty:

Wt is 8 lbs 10 oz

First fret .919

12th Fret is .998

It has great depth to the neck but is not filled in, at the shoulders.

Trades extend to the Les Paul Historic family only, Thinking of a CC # ?

I was going to say...man that aint no skinny neck, must be the shoulders.

That top is SICK. GLWTS!

Lemonburst and flametop in perfection. What a nice fiddle, Vic. GLWTS

@LPCustom: let Vic send it to you. You can convert the price paid in USD into Euros 1:1 with transport, insurance and the fookin taxes, duties and what not all. Would still make a good price for Europe, or not?

Not really.. That would be about the same price, or even slightly higher than a new one would cost here in Sweden (without price negotiation), and then I also can´t try it before. Prices have really gone down here the last few years, don´t know if it´s a currency thing or whatever, but this summer the big music store chain had a campaign where they sold new 2013-14 R8´s for 3500 USD/2700 euro..

I´m hoping to score a nice R8 for about 3000 USD sooner or later.. I have good friends in Rochester, maybe I´ll fly over there next year and go to HOG :)
