• 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!

Does this look like a real R9?

Hi all, there is currently a pretty epic over 16 page discussion over on TGP, about whether a supposedly R9 les paul with serial no. 9 1959 is real or not. It doesn't have a COA or case, but allegedly has an appraisal from gruhns as an R9, and an R9 cavity stamp. The gibson logo looks off and the top is strange.

I'm not the OP, just wondering if anyone here has any thoughts.
