Got a 60th Anniversary 59 from Wildwood Guitars. Service was top drawer as always. If your on the fence with one these, I was just so pleased with this one all around.

Thank you, Do you have any pictures you can post of your burst? Would love to see it. Tobacco burst don't appear to be a favorite of most. I have just loved them since I was a kid.

Thanks for the pic. R8 plain tops are the best. I had to let mine go a few years ago. Yours has a real vintage look to my eye. Hope you find another you like as well. Again thanks for posting the pic. All the best! Mark

Happy Christmas!

That's my favourite color for the 60th anniversaries.
But the burst is not knew. Actually it's the Joe Perry burst. They did a limited run with R8s in kindred burst and brown backs, I think last year or was it 2017? Can't remember.

So enjoy the Joe Perry vibe Les Paul. Looks great!

I think all the kindred burst 60th Anniversary R9s I’ve seen had Bolivian Rosewood boards. Is that also the case on your R9? I’m really wanting to try one with Bolivian Rosewood.
