Question about R9


Recommended Posts

I came across one fellow's Les Paul R9. It is beautiful guitar. The serial number is 9 1xxx.


I am wondering if LP Reissue R9 introduced in 1991?


Some articles on gibson's website says that R9 is debuted in 1992.


Am I wrong? Please help me. Thanks very much! :-)

There is no historic collection before 1992. Yours must be from 2001 I guess. Open the pots cavity, if you can read "R9" inside inked onto the wood it's definitly an historic collection from 2001. If there's nothing it's a "Prehistoric" Reissue from 1991. Actually Gibson started Reissue models before Custom shop exist but specifications were not so accurate as now.

Check it and tell us.
