Got this absolute stunner yesterday and spent all night playing it. It's a 2021 R9 in iced tea burst. The pictures, even the first pic below which is from the dealer, do not do the top justice...the top has so much movement and depth to it that a camera can't capture. Love the coloring of it too. Plus, it weighs only 7 pounds 15 ounces! Unfortunately the switch tip exploded during transit on its way to me, so I have an inquiry to the dealer to get me a new one.

I'll have to take better pictures on a sunny day with my good camera.

Thanks all!

Congrats, the last pic is stunning!
Yeah that was with a flash that captures just some of the depth...any angle you look at it reveals different figuring in the wood...its so nice lol

Nice guitar! Congrats!

Why do people still ship Les Pauls with the switch tip installed. :facepalm:
I always make it a point to remove the switch tip whenever I ship an LP. The Gibson USA ones never seem to break but I still remove them. The custom shop ones are much more fragile

Absolutely gorgeous! That top and color are out of this world!

The '21 R9s are fantastic guitars. The combination of the unpotted pups and upgraded harness seem to really take the tone over the top. I love mine.

Congrats and HNGD!

The tone from this guitar is superb. Clear, articulate, nice blooming effect, and the sustain!
