    LP R9 tortoise side dot

    Dear LPF members

    I have a question about the side dot of the LP R9 fretboard.

    This feature is available since the first reissue were produced or itís possible to find at a certain time some R9 with black dot?

    thank you for your help.

    according to the sticky thread in this very forum, 2001 introduced the tortoise side markers

    I know my 1998 R8 has black side markers

    And sometimes the tortoise is very dark- practically black

    Thank you for your feedbacks guys.
    It was about a R9 from 2000 since there is no COA this year I had a doubt when I saw black dots while itís told that it should be tortoise on historic LP
