    I've never been a "NGD!" sort of guy, but these are two nice LPs that I happen to own: 2013 R9 and 2014 Chambered R7. My two favorite guitars. Gibson did an excellent job on these. Here ya go:

    Gibson's improved the goldtop color immensely in recent years. My '03, while attractive, doesn't compare to yours. :aok

    Geez, these guitars look hot! Well done!

    Are they both VOS? Glossy?

    Do they sound similar, and which neck shape are you preferring right now?
