    NGD 2016 Historic R9 My First one...

    2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard Historic R9 - thanks Dave...

    .92 at the first fret. Plays with the lowest action I have ever played in over 40 yrs...

    Sounds great, feels great, and looks great too. Sunrise TeaBurst

    Thatís the kind of guitar u should give to me , believe me it will make us both feel better !
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    He thinks the mirror is a photo of a clown ?

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Thank you for all your kind words.

    It took quite awhile, but by "trading up" over many years...it finally paid off for me.

    (it took me 10 years to get my first Gibson LP Standard.)

    Gorgeous, Tom! Congrats on a beautiful guitar. I really love the colour and the figure. Great vintage vibe. Is she a screamer or a moaner? Enjoy!!!
