• 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!

It's a nice sunny day here in on the Eastern Shore so I thought to take advantage and snap some pics. 2009 R9 DJ Makeover with the full package. Brazilian, aged plastic, top carve, hide glue, etc... it's all there and I can't put 'er down!

Wow what an absolutely killer looking R9. If it sounds as good as it looks then you don't get much better than that! :2cool

That turned out really nice. I remember when you posted last year this was in process and you were aiming for a finish in the Mike McCready vain. I would be very happy if mine turns out as good as this. Mine is still behind yours obviously. To answer 6950's question, mine was place in que prior to the relationship with Mark and Dave.

Thanks! That's right! I couldn't be more pleased. It really plays and sounds great. I upgraded pretty much everything except for the knobs. Tulips, guard, rings, pup covers, tip, selector ring... figured if I went this far, might as well go all the way!

Thanks Guys... really couldn't be more happy so far. With all the upgrades with construction, braz, glue, plastics, the guitar really pops now acoustically, rings like a bell , and can get really aggressive and do the hard rock thing.... 8lbs 4ozs as well!
