• 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!

Who needs an R9 when there's R8's like this available!

2002 R8 purchased new from a now defunct Gibson dealer down the road from me named Vintage World. She now sports upgraded plastic, NOS Sprague caps, aged Kluson tuners, Pigtail tailpiece and PAF's from 1961.

Wow PAF's how much a difference are they? I haven't heard a PAF in over 20 years, at least in a guitar I own.
