Get it, if you have the cash (IMO) there is no down side  :)

You should join the Les Paul forum and ask over there - on that board there are dealers who specialise in this kind of thing with very good reps for cherry picking the good ones.

He bought it, the missus found out, he's in casualty...

:lol:

btw - I agree with everything said so far.

You are crazy, but no more than anyone else...

I started wondering about the "Gibson going down rumours" and thinking "what should I get??". Then I sat there looking at my Explorer and SG Special Faded, and realised I hadn't been hankering after anything before I heard this, so for me, it's really "so what?"...

But if there is something you actually want, and it might get harder to buy one... hmmm...

If you got the cash, go for it...

My interest in this guitar is nothing to do with the "Gibson are knackered" rumours.  It's purely the Pearly Gates/Billy Gibbons thing.  I wouldn't go out and buy any old R9 - it's a Pearly or nothing.

A decision has been made.

I'm currently in a teleconference at work, but once it finishes I'll be making a call to leave a deposit on the one below.  It weighs 8.4lbs and is apparently stunning in the flesh:

I'm breaking the New Year's resolution nice and early, just like Philly Q  :lol:

Bit of an exceptional case though, this one.......

Of course. Resolutions are there to be broken.

Best to break 'em early, less guilt. 

It's costing you about 10 times as much, though!  :lol:

Might as well. Would be a shame to break one for a measly amount of money!!
