    I agree, plus depending on where you live, you cant take that boat out every day, like here in Massachusetts.

    1959 Reissue Sunburst

    No probally not, but thats why you need to decided whether you want to float, or ride the lightning.Since you created this topic, asking whether you should buy an R9 or a new boat, i gave you my opinion, since thats what you seemed to be looking for. Given your reply, perhaps you answered your...

    Callaham Cold Rolled Steel Stop Tailpiece << VS >> Faber Tone-Lock Aluminum Stop Tailpiece w/ ToneLock Studs/Spacers

    Oh ok, that explains that,...awsome man, i hear the Pigtails are good, they supposedly make them with the larger brass saddles like the origional 50’s were, and a more vintage correct body.

    Callaham Cold Rolled Steel Stop Tailpiece << VS >> Faber Tone-Lock Aluminum Stop Tailpiece w/ ToneLock Studs/Spacers

    Also i forgot to ask...How do you know its a cheap no name tailpiece? Forgive my ignorance but , i believe the stop tailpiece, that my 2019 R9 and 2018 R0, have nothing written on the bottom of them... i think my 2016 Gibson USA les paul Standard says “Advanced Plating” on the bottom, but...

    The OP here said that he bought the guitar used with an allready replaced tailpiece, so he is looking to replace it with a better model.He could go stock, sure but since he has to buy one, why not Pigtail, or sure even stock

    Callaham Cold Rolled Steel Stop Tailpiece << VS >> Faber Tone-Lock Aluminum Stop Tailpiece w/ ToneLock Studs/Spacers

    I would say the stock tailpiece that the custom shop installs on the guitar, since it is a Historic les paul.Im into upgrading my Historics as well, only with more vintage correct parts.Ive installed Cremetone poker chips, on my R9 and R0, and a Montreux time machine 3 way toggle switch tip on...

    Re 'V' meaning

    Re 'V' meaning

    Wow, thanks for replying, thats interesting, so the V3 , R0 gives you an even thinner neck than a typical R0? So would this resemble an player modded example? Or is this something that Gibson did in the production of the 1960 Les paul? My 2018 R0 neck is only a touch smaller than my 2019...

    Re 'V' meaning

    The “V” refers to the 2020 R0 1960 Burst reissue.

I thought that the V1 might of even had some more...
