2017 R9, found on eBay in 2001 for $3800! Due to a brain fart or fumble fingers I had the dates wrong, it's actually a 2007 I acquired in 2008.

So, I know this isn’t a lemon, but some of the others in here don’t appear to be either, so here is just another awesome Les Paul. 2003 Classic, Faber metal work, Montys pickups with a full braided rewire, pots and caps courtesy of me. I present “Ivy”.

@pjholland and @1allspub I'm happy with the stock fretboard so I am going with a Standard Makeover and what they call "Broken In Aging". The top and neck will be contoured to vintage specs but no Brazilian fretboard. The VOS finish is nice but I wanted a more authentic (un-plasticized) nitrocellulose lacquer finish with weather checking. I am not expecting it to be finished until February 2023.

Who else loves a good lemon burst? I posted a pick of this one when I picked her up from Wildwood a month or so ago, and has quickly become one of my all time favorites - let’s see some lemon love and post some pics of yours!

Dang, pretty much the same thing I'm thinking of doing but hesitant because I'm so happy with my R8 the way it is and not sure I could be without it for so long!
