Hi fellow LPF members, new to these parts...after owning a great plaintop R8 for 13 years I broke down and bought something flamey. Ideally, I'd prefer a lemonburst but this guitar was local, I could try it out first, and its incredible. Haven't got a weight on it, but its significantly lighter than my '08 R8. This '18 R9 resonates and sustains incredibly, has almost Tele levels of snap and clarity all while still sounding like a good Paul. Love the Custombuckers, so much in fact that I may swap out the BB1/BB2 set in my R8 for some. Anyways, here's some pics because you know....
