Comments about Gibson Custom Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss Electric Guitar:
I've owned an R4 and an R8 from 2014. This new 2016 R9 blows them out of the water in terms of craftsmanship and attention to detail. I got the Lemon Burst color option and it is absolutely gorgeous. If you don't need your car, then sell it and buy one of these new 2016 Standard Historic line of Gibson Guitars! They are absolutely the best Reissue from Gibson in years! This past 2-3 years, Gibson has been simultaneously making the worst and best products in the history of their company. This is definitely the best of the best.
