They are doing something right, it seems. it's heartwarming to see, honestly.

It looks like they've got a solid foundation on which they can reset and re-establish the classic line while leaving some wiggle room for more modern options to keep evolving with the times. Good for them and good for the guitar world, I say.
Gibson's sweet spot is with the historic reissued Les Pauls like the R9 you have. Those "R" series guitars are no joke. Anybody that criticizes Gibson but hasn't played those R series Les Pauls is missing big time. Those guitars really give you the tone, feel and vibe of the very first Les Pauls ever built. Very impressive instruments. Price is a turn-off for most people, but I think they are worth the price.
Good to see Gibson is trying to move into a good direction these days.
