Saw this 2022 68RI Custom on Reverb, emailed Lovies, scooped it up the next day. Travelled from California to Canada and here we are!

Didn't take a ton of pics when I unboxed it yesterday due to having a very energetic child nearby (iykyk).

If I buy from Derrick again I'll save all the listing photos!

A bit under 10lbs, neck similar to my R9 (the thing I was most worried about prior to asking around) and the 68 custom pickups are nice and clear. I've wanted a les paul custom since I was a teenager. My first good guitar was a 2004 studio black with gold hardware (and the only Gibson I bought new). Almost 20 years later and I've pulled it off. Can't say I miss my ebony R8. These even have the tortoiseshell side dots like the other historics.

Between this and my '21 R9 I'm considering selling a couple more singlecuts.

I'll be taking some backyard photos on the weekend.

Thats beautiful, man. Congrats on getting what you always wanted. Doesn’t look like it disappoints!
