Here’s some info about these truly special LP’s.
Music Machine never had Gibson build them an anniversary R9. All of the Music Machine 25th anniversary guitars are R0 60 reissues and the necks on these guitars are quite slim tapered but not too thin and also not baseball bat profiled. I would say they are between a 59 and a 60. This special run also had a special truss rod cover that says “Music Machine 25th Anniversary” and they were finished a pretty cool colour called MM burst which is just a version of faded cherry sunburst.
Probably the best thing about these guitars is the fact that Gibson allowed Edwin Wilson and the employee’s of MM to do special wood pulls for this run and they picked very best tops for these guitars and if you ever see one you will say WOW these tops are very special. I mean the quilts and flames were some of the deepest 5A tops we have seen since the good wood years in the 90’s. These guitars sound just awesome and very different than regular reissues. The tone is just so rich with the nicest mids and lows I have ever heard. Edwin Wilson explained that the neck blank for these guitars was so important to him because the neck acts like a big tuning fork so he picked heavy neck blanks for this run. Many of the guitars weighed like near 9 pounds but felt like they weighed 8 pounds because much of the weight was in the neck. This was the reason for the great tone.
