That sucks. It had pin stripe like a lot of them do. But it was solid and rolled very very cool!

I picked that dark cherry one out for RICH, that had some deep, 3D flame. I wouldn't of minded having that one for myself!

Hey RICH!!

Hey RICH I just bought 9 0909, heres a link to some pics... http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1446749078

do you have any pics of 9 0908, or was that the one you were showing above? I'm just curious about the wood....wait that didn't sound right, sounded like something Kreig would say....I meant, uh, um, I wanted to see if they were similar, yeah similar that's it.

Those R8's seem like they could easily qualify to be R9's. Am I missing something here, the new R8's seem pretty damn sweet. If only I had the money.

HEY RICH , The next time your selling wood let us know first. I can't believe you let that one go. Shoot him again Dave.

Yeah, I F**ked up, but I did replace it with a Historic Korina Explorer, plus I sold a few other pre-98 models and grabed Three 01s to replace them, so it was a casuality of a Napoleonic land battle GAS aquisition blitzkreig.

The R7, R8, R9 are all the same (just different tops) including the tenon through to the body like the originals.

Nice batch of 'Burst's, but I wouldn't order one simply by viewing those poor quality digital images. Most dealers will not appraise guitars by digital images alone, why should we buy on the same principal? I'm not saying there's anything wrong with them, but with those pictures, who the hell can tell?
