So I picked up a used 2020 Les Paul R8 VOS in washed cherry a few weeks ago, and I love it. It's the first historic I've owned, and coming from having a few MIJ copies, this is in a whole other league. I tried to get by with the cheaper copies over the years, but I just realized that I needed a nice Gibson.

The guitar is as resonant as my Tele, is a nice weight at around 8.3lbs, has a comfy neck carve that's not too big, and has sustain and clarity for days. It's got a really cool subtle flame at the bottom that looks like an arrow pointing up, has some cool rosewood streaks in the fret board, and has a great piece of mahogany with a beautiful dark stain on the back that pictures don't do justice.

Updated the OP with some pictures in better lighting. Looks incredible in natural sunlight. It’s almost like the top is on fire. haha
