• 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!

I’m new here, seems like a pretty cool forum. I bought a 2019 claim top gO a while back. I was wondering if anyone knew what the difference between these and r0s that are well over $1000 more?

Same guitar. G0s generally have plain tops, that's the main price difference, but there are flame top G0s out there. Snobs may not think as highly of them because the serial number is not vintage correct.

Yeah mines a flame top bourbon burst. Not extremely flamey, but I don’t like that anyway. Looks more vintage correct with the lighter flame. I could care less about the serial number

My 2002 Guitar Center R-0 has a Birdseye Maple top. It's from the run of 5 made for GC and was the originator of the GO Series. I think I paid $2,250. for mine.

Mine has a regular flame maple top, I paid $4000 in the summer of 2019

Although I do not own a R-0 I have it bad for one , the vibe factor is heavy Man . I own several Historic's each and everyone is it's own flavor!

This thread needs photos .

I have played a few G0s but not any as new as a 2019 so i cant speak to the newer version of the G0, but some of the older ones i think it was 2011/12 had a jimmy page type push pull to split the coils, i think those are "looked down upon" but who cares. IF U DIG THE GUITAR rock it.

The funny thing about the G0 is that every time I have visited my local GC ( which it has been awhile ) I have never seen a G0 in the store . Usually would visit before catching a flight as it's near my airport .

Are you currently listing this on Reverb? Is that the one you're referencing?
