Just got this 2016 Gibson Standard Historic R8, I owned an R9 back in 2008 but let it go and have regretted it ever since, finally got another Gibson Custom Shop burst and have to say the 2016 is a better sounding guitar, it doesn't look too shabby either. I love the fat neck.

I used to like thinner necks but have really changed lately and find the 58 neck so comfortable now. I'm stoked with this new guitar

Sweet, sweet top on that, congrats!


Went fat years ago and am very happy with them.
I have an incoming R8 that is .955" at the 1st fret.

Another member here, a friend of mine, calls them "Stoopid fat!".

Those are the shoes I like to walk in.
