I am trying to have a 2001 R9 Historic Les Paul serial number verified for Brazilian Fretboard.
The guitar is within the Serial Number range and have contacted Daryl Mosley at Gibson Customer Service.
Daryl replied back and said, it is my understanding that the only year that Gibson used Brazilian
for Reissues was in early 2003.
Is there any one else at Gibson that could help me, the thread at the top clearly shows that
Brazilian was used on 38 guitars in 2001.
My guitar is number 9 1229.
Seems people at Gibson should have some one that could be in a position that would know
a little about these Historic's, rather than guess and not know.
