• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Thanks :) The R5 or Hotrod 55 is a really good one it's a '10, Love the guitar! The only changes are SD Antiquities! Do you have the P90 version ? I see so few of these also! Mine has a slightly off-center seam in keeping to the theme :)

Thanks guys ! I traded a silver Klon for this! I bought the Klon new so it was a killer deal for me! I haven't used the Klon constantly for years as it was too much money to risk on my board at a gig or jam. I really like this R8! I am going to change the PUs to SD Antiquities and call it a day ! I guess making it an '08 means it is the 50th anniversary of sorts ...

No, I M2M spec'd my Black Widow to get one.

R5 HS spec with NOS wired Wizzeroonis in it.

Threw in the stinger and guilded it.

Nice. I haven't seen a flame top 2008 R8 and thought 2010 or 2011 was when they started showing up again.

Post up a pic here! Would love to see it! I did a "conversion" of an old 2000 Les Paul Classic that may have a similar Look :) 10636231_757160391008754_3914615415230441478_n.jpg 12144703_970565016334956_4670922238587914420_n.jpg
