    Hello TGP. Any thoughts on a fair price for a 2008 plain top R8, bone stock in good shape? I am new to Gibson historic and not sure what the going rate for a slightly older R8 is. Thanks for any help!

    $2,200 - $2,400. I bought a new one in 2008 for $2,500. MAP at the time was $3,150.

    I would say US$2,400 - $2,500 from an individual, more from a store. The MAP or even the street price from 2008 are pretty much irrelevant in 2014. Used prices are going up too, what with the pending Gibson price increase.

    $2400 would be a decent price.
