    NOS 2007 R9

    Impossible to imagine but there's unsold 2007 and older Historics still out there. Here's my brand spankin' new 2007 R9 VOS in washed cherry.

    Most of the HIstorics at my local (San Antonio) Sam Ash are NOS '07's.

    Beautiful guitar BTW

    Love it! I really like the tops on the 2007's. I like the necks better too. I've tried a few 2010's and although they were very nice guitars I didn't care for the neck as much.
    Looks awesome! Congrats!

    Re: NOS 2007 R9

    I have a 2007 R9. It really has a woody tone and sustains like crazy. In many ways I prefer it to the 2009 Les Pauls that I have purchased. Many people ascribe certain qualities to certain production years. Like, for example, the original 1959 models!

    Well, my experience with recent production Historic Les Paul models is that there may well be something very special that happened with the 2007 models. I think it is just "luck" with the wood supply at the particular time of production.

    Some, many in fact, may differ from me in their view on this and who can say in the end what it really is. We still have yet to figure out exactly why the 1959 models sound the way they do. While I speculate that there are many great sounding Les Pauls from most, if not all, production years; I do think that 2007 produced some particularly fine specimens.

    Re: NOS 2007 R9

    Thanks everyone! Yes another one, yes the 2010 I had for a week was exchanged for this very graciously I might add and I love the neck on this one. This is what just seems so "right" to me if not the most up to date historic profile the 2009-2010 R9s have. The place I worked with got two more of these in from their warehouse for me and let me come in and audition in person. The two that came in were both killer so it was nearly a flip of a coin which one I was going home with. This one was just a smidge under 9lbs give or take but had so much going for it I grabbed it over the lighter more flamey '07 that came in with it. This is another R9, so far 4 for 4 I've played that sounded way cool right out of the box. On the amp I was auditioning this particular axe out on I was getting a SPOT ON Bloomfield chirpy middle position and a howling bridge pickup tone! Sweet detailed and woody neck pickup sounds too. She's a keeper for sure.

    Yeah, your R8 was in grave danger there for awhile.
    We'll definitely be hooking up again absolutely, looking forward to it.

    Had the chance to play this guitar today and his very nice R7. Thanks Rick! Had a blast this afternoon. I can vouch, this guitar is down right a great player and that top, WOW!

    The 2nd and 4th photos do give a descent representation of the flame.

    Re: NOS 2007 R9

    Looks fantastic, I bet that top is even sweeter in person - it's very rarely a photo can do a flametop true justice. Glad you're enjoying it, 2007 was supposedly a "good year" after all!

    Re: NOS 2007 R9

    No, thank YOU Mars Hall yer too kind for sure. I enjoy the top of this as much as I did the top on the 2010 but the 2010 top was stronger and perhaps more 3D. Probably the coolest top I ever saw in person. I enjoy the neck a lot better however on this '07, no comparison there at all for me. Between the pickups and the wood the sound is very much similar to the Throbaks in my R7 but there's a nice dry hollowness in the upper mids on the R9 that makes this one really stand out. Mars is a heck of a good fingerstylist and I got to hear sounds coming out of both of my axes I never did when I play them so that was an added treat.

    Thanks, the top is cooler than I'd expected. I ordered it and another '07 R9 from Woodwind & Brasswinds website. They have several, like 10 under the 1959VOS link where you could pick from the different serial numbers and see what the actual guitar looks like. This used to be the main GuitarSale hub where they stocked all those great axes. Now I guess they're stocked in Kansas City and they can get them in for auditioning which is what I ended up doing. I've bought all but one of four different Historics from them over the years. I concur, 2007 was a good year!
