• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

R9 ?

R2 - R0 Refers to the specific year of Historic Reissues
R2 = 1952 Historic Reissue (or 1952 Reissue)
R9 = 1959 Historic Reissue
This came about because of the practice of the Gibson Custom shop stamping each reissue with it's designated year in the control cavity.
