On the way. Should have this on Thursday.

After a visit to Songbirds museum in Chattanooga yesterday, I can't get 'bursts off my mind.

I saw it appear briefly on The Gear Page. I asked about it and the ad disappeared!?!?

I contacted the seller and made an offer, asking if he still had it for sale. He replied the he did. He answered some questions. More pictures.

Purchase made!!


Oh, I forgot....... 7 lbs, 15 oz !!!!!!

That's a 2010. I have a 2000 serial # 9 0503. Crazy how they recycle every 10 years.

Technically, the serial says it was made in 2010. The Gibson customer service says it is a 2009 Ltd Ed as the COA says. The guy said it was really common for a year model to cross over the calendar.

Either way, it is on par, maybe better, than my 2016 R9.

I like that type of smaller squiggly flame, kind of like Pearly Gates! As you can see here my R0 is that way...

Looks like my R9. Very nice. I love the color and tight flame. My wife actually picked mine out because "it was pretty". When I heard it I grabbed it the next day.

Thanks for all the nice words.

I have another R9 and many other nice guitars. But this one really seems special. I can't put it down. The upside is that I am putting in a lot more playing time. That is a good thing since I retired from Live music after 27 years of non-stop gigging. This guitar is making me want to get back out there. :hee
