    Saw Mick Taylor playing his 59 and Keith playing MiCawber in those days ( early 70s) an amazing combo of guitar sounds.
    Turned me onto Teles.

    No that happened from a guy called Reg Lindsay when I was about 8 (55 years ago). Reg used to play it on a Fender Twin ( which I later owned for 17 years), on The Reg Lindsay Country and Western Hour, complete with square dancing and a "caller" Colin Hudlestone. Yee Har !!

    You better watch out you are going to get the “I’ve never payed more than $150 for a guitar “ folks going. Then someone will have to post get off my lawn.

    Yep, I bought a 2013 traditional, with a really nice top for about $1400, it actually pretty much takes care of my r9 jones

    If you want a Les paul ( understand you perfectly) and have the money for a new R9 I would go and try as many as you want.

    Then, sooner o later you will find one that sings to you... then grab it and take it home.

    You may be surpised... I had a Standard, a 95 goldtop, a 72 Deluxe and sold them and I got my 2018 Classic Player Plus with P90 that is the guitar that I play more since I got her. I got her por 1K € second hand... this one is a keeper, a player and a beater to me and you will have to pry it from may dead cold fingers

    I have in my stable a 16' 50's tribute studio and it has a really fat neck on it, maybe not quite as fat as a R9 but it definitely gives you something to hold on to. These used in good shape can be had for $700 . I got mine new and it still was only $1000 +case these also had the 498T pickup in the neck as apposed to the 490R and 490T the tributes have now the 490R 498T combination being the better sounding of the two combos in my opinion. Great Gibson Les Pauls for the Money.

    You could find a used Traditional as well though the headstocks are a little bigger than the standards, classics, and historic lines

    I also have a 2013 Traditional. It keeps me from spending the extra on a flametop RI. I think mine was $1600 new.

    The new 2019s (at least the Standards) have gone back to the smaller headstock. I think they look great.

    I bought a new Traditional in 2010 and it satisfies my LP gas. I really like the fat neck...

    I had a Studio back in the 90's, great guitar although a bit heavy.

    Gil Yaron makes an excellent 59' LP. might look into one of those.

    The Stones at their best with Mick Taylor. I saw them on that tour in Wash., DC; Exile on Main Street had just come out. One of the best concerts I ever saw.

    I'm waiting on this one now. It's the 2019 50's style LP with P90s. Probably another 5 weeks or so
