Apologies if this is Having just graduated college I want to treat myself to a new axe and as long as I've played guitar I've always lusted after the tones Page got out of his 59 LP (cliche I know). I realize there is more to a tone than a guitar and I'm not looking to copy him by any means, but I've always wanted an LP and I figured I'd get one of the reissues. So for LP players, what is the biggest difference between the 1958 and the 1959 reissue? Why is the R9 significantly more expensive? Furthermore, are the Burstbuckers worth having or would 57 classics be better? Is there a better Les Paul out there that you guys would recommend over the R* series? I've never owned a Gibson axe but I've noticed that every LP I've ever played felt different.. some really had great tone others were kind of meh, is this true in the R series as well? Are there any other issues I should look for in my search? Thanks a lot!
