• 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 been a while since I played this guitar...and eric johnson for that matter. Got really distracted with a strat (I know I know...:dang). That shall change all soon.

I just found out I never learned the rest of this song. Priorities for a band that never ended up lasting.

And no the headstock isn't broken...:hmm

You could break 3 of your fingers on each of your hands and you would STILL be better than I will ever be! Way to ROCK IT MAN! P.S. I broke 3 headstocks off this week to test that theory and they don't sound any better so them guys may be full of chitties. They say I needs be snappin' at least 4 more to 'have a statistically significant sample'...

Thanks for the kind words all. The guitar in unfamiliar territory...much better than iphone photos but can't seem to escape imgur compressing images...

That is one of the nicest ... if not the nicest ... R9 I've seen.

I'm a Deluxe/Deluxe Pro man, but I'd buy yours in a heartbeat.

Ha, thank you! It's got it all for me: the top, the color, the sound, weight, neck size, neck/truss rod stability.
The only mod did to it is a pair of old duncan antiquities with full strength a2 magnets.

I had about ten guitars previously. I had always wanted to cut it down to 2-3 keepers, but fully knew I had to wait for the right les paul, because I'm picky like that.
Once I sold about 9, this popped up and I only checked the truss rod and state of the neck and brought it home with me. Then I sold the last strat, replaced it with a fender cs 57 relic so that the r9 would have a friend.

Poor lighting in the second pic, makes the rosewood seem like maple, and the 2tone sunburst like 3tone, but you get the idea.
As I write, I've just been told that the strat is done with its refret, and I can pick it up. Can't wait.
