    We are long overdue for a nice controversial Les Paul thread, and who better to start then me?

    Got a new R4 from Santa and shot some pics.

    OK, so R4 is a 1954 reissue and an R6 is a 1956 reissue and an R0 is a 1960 reissue. I am catching on so far. But what is the R7, R8, and R9? :confused:

    :p

    And if the Les Paul Classic is called a 1960 reissue, who gets shot if they call it an R0? :moon
