    New Guitar Day!

    Congrats on a beautiful R9! You found the right one. PS, Gridlock this is Justin that you met in Tampa. The guy plagiarizing SRV poorly through your amazing mint '64 Deluxe Reverb. Good to see you around these parts too!

    Historic Les Paul tailpiece changes? Please Help!

    I've been trying to nail down why my 2018 R9 rings so much better than my 2008 R8, given that they are both custom shop Les Pauls with only 10 years separating them.

    Current VOS treatment?

    Interesting...on my '08 R8 VOS, the finish has gotten progressively more glossy over the years simply by cleaning the guitar with a dry cloth. My '18 R9 VOS is already very glossy, so much so that I was surprised that it was a VOS. No finish scratches, swirls, or gunky finish on mine.

    First time poster, my dream R9!

    Hi fellow LPF members, new to these parts...after owning a great plaintop R8 for 13 years I broke down and bought something flamey. Ideally, I'd prefer a lemonburst but this guitar was local, I could try it out first, and its incredible. Haven't got a weight on it, but its significantly...
