Wow! Looks so much "truer"! For 8k or whatever it is, I'll pass. Let the feeding frenzy begin for the Gibson fanboys!

Do you guys think that Gibson will only offer a Cherry Sunburst finish?

Sprayed with aniline dye, to be faded by the customer/time?

That would be most true.

Nope, that would be too "true" they need another carrot to dangle for next year to justify another price hike! What a joke! I'll never buy a new Gibson. Greedy bastards.

Big gap between the neck pup and the fretboard. That's always annoyed me. Plastics look the same to me.

I thought I read on here the R8's would be morphed into the R9 line, all with killer tops, all the same price just differences in neck size? This photo contradicts that notion and also does nothing for me.

I'm checking my pockets for a rat's a$$, but I just can't seem to find one to give.

Honestly, I like the plain top on that. Pretty guitar, but it's tainted by the money-grab. :hyper:

If you check the originals in BOTB and elsewhere, you'll see that's historically correct.

...but not worth a $2000+ increase IMO.
