Yes but he sold it to someone in Conn (guessing Connecticut) whereas R8 Lemonburst is in the UK

So (now leading up to what i'm trying to figure out) how is it you (R8 lemonburst ) have aged #018 and Cindyron has/had #018 aged and signed?

Ron was the original owner, he sold it recently.

There is aged/signed #1 - #50, the number is hand written by JB himself. Then the remaining aged have #001 - #100 stamped. I own aged #018, cindyron's #18 was the signed version...

Hope this clears it up.

Re: Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Registry

I had a play on a 2014 R9 lemonburst at World guitars in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, they had a skinnerburst  in there but it was sold and they were in the process of setting it up. I did however compare the tops together and they were both fantastic. The R9 played great too so i'd be happy with a lemon but ultimately a skinnerburst is on my list

Re: Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Registry

I've not played a 2014 R9 but the 2013 ones are excellent. Wether it's just me but the Skinner has something extra about it... I love it smile

Hi, new to this site and just recently discovered Joe. Really would like a Gibson again and am loving the Skinnerburst. But can some one explain if there's a difference between aged and aged and signed?

Hi Welcome to the group.........aged are hand-aged by Gibson employees to recreate an older guitar. Aged/Signed is the
same process but the Artist Signs the back of the headstock of the guitar before it is shipped out from the factory.
Usually Aged/Signed ones are less quantity....typically 25, 50 etc...Aged alone could be 100-200 etc etc.
.
They are both the same guitar.....you are paying more $$$ for less made & artist signature @ the Factory....

What aged/signed ones less quality? Your dead wrong the reverse is true. Not sur where you got your info from but that is completely wrong. Sorry if I come across as in your face but I had two aged/signed skinners serial 18 and serial 1. Sold number 18 obviously kept 001
Peace Ron

Hi Ron,
he said "less quantity", not quality...that is they made less Aged/Signed than Aged and VOS.

After that he said "less made", that is the same, a very limited number, compared to the normal Aged and VOS. This limited number and the artist signature made this guitar more expensive...and absolutely more desirable!!! smile

Re: Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Registry

with regards to the desirability i'd personaly prefer a Vos to an aged (although i like the fact Joe signed them) i don't like the headstock so trashed and would prefer to age it myself through use

Re: Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Registry

Put me down for Aged #042,  Minnesota, USA!!!

Re: Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Registry

I fitted a set of Seymour Duncan Skinnerburst pickups to mine recently. The difference between these and the Gibson pickups is subtle but have noticed the mid position with both pickups gives a very pronounced honk.
Neck vol. 7.5, tone 10 & Bridge vol. 6.5, tone 7.5... Very pleasing.
