Your taste in guitars is sympatico with mine.

I love this axe....more than many R9 and R0's....

Reminds me quite a bit of one of Mike S.'s bursts. (actually the color of one, and the flecks from another)

That is yummy. Great mineral flecking on that top.

Plaintop?
Yes, the dealer had it listed as a Plaintop but like many 2013's listed as such there is the bonus of some floor flame to sweeten the deal. Some more than others. Although the color and the mineral streaking are what I first noticed, a little flame is certainly welcome. Especially at this price point...

It seems to me that line between Plaintop and Lightly Figured is as blurry as the one between Lightly Figured and Figured...:hmm
