    Pearly Street Price?

    Can someone tell me (ballpark) what the street price was for a new Billy Gibbons signature LP?

    Incoming 2009 R9 from MGL

    I have been searching for a realistic and old looking R9 and was lucky to buy this one from Mark Bishop, who took these great pics. I love the non-bookmatched top.

    Ruby Burst 50th Anniversary R9s

    I was just surfing some Gibson dealers' websites and it looks like Sweetwater commissioned a limited run of 50th Anniversary R9s in what is being called "Ruby Burst." There are pictures on the site (I have no affiliation with the seller).
