List of 2009 R9 changes

What are some things they could make more accurate for the 2010 50th Anny R0s?

I think they should concentrate this time and do a REAL MEASUREMENT of a real 59 or 57 or what ever new "more accurate" money machine they are trying to come up this time.

Cant they do just the right thing this time?

2009 R0 0 9211 has all the spec. changes except the fillet strip in the neck cavity is the same as '08...
So the R9's have a different neck construction than the R0's this year?
Maybe they're waiting for next year to make the change.
I wonder if the fillet strip in the R7's and R's are also like the pre-'09's.

=Xmas;...are there any other Historics (e.g., R7, R6, R8) on display with any of the new specs? Is there any word on whether, for example, a 2009 R7 will have these changes?

Does anyone know the answer to this? I would really be interested to know. :hmm

Thanks! :)
