This is my second NGGD (New Gibson Guitar Day) in the past three weeks having only recently bought a new (to me) 2019 Standard 50s.
R8 is lighter and feels more “alive” unplugged. They’re both great guitars, haven’t played the R8 enough yet to form an opinion above “I love it”. On a basic level the sounds are more complex and have more nuance than the standard but the standard is no slouch. I really like the neck and frets on the R8 too.Beautiful, congrats!
How do the R8 and Standard compare?
