    Gibson had a promotion deal on the '99 R9's.

    They came with the black case, but if you sent the warranty and a copy of your sales receipt to Gibson, they would send you the Lifton case and a copy of BOTB.

    Hi - anybody know the answer to this? I too am curious to know what nut material was used on a 2007 prior to the nylon nuts.

    What is the difference between ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ maple tops, as referred to as the difference between 93-2001 LPs?

    I think it may have been Corian, the same material used for kitchen countertops.

    Is it possible that R6 from 2001 don't have a COA and have brazilian fretboard? This is one of the first R6 in 2001.

    OK. First phase is compiling all of this into a Google doc, then deciding what to keep, then finally layout. I'll need lots of help, to review and fill gaps!

    EDIT: Google Doc here:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    please insert any edits as comments. editing has been disabled on the doc.

    Official 2018 changes:

    2018changes_2.jpg2018changes_1.jpg


    Official 2019 changes:

    According to this interview with Mat Koehler, Customshop Product Development Manager.
    I list some points

    • All True Historic parts with updated color.
    • Custom Bucker pickups are unpotted (you can expect better dynamic but also more microphonic).
    • 64' SG (with thicker neck) will be available.
    • R9 will have the 60th anniversary medallion and some special case candy.
    • The gold color of Goldtop will be darker.
