    Very cool...love the patterns on the body and fretboard.

    I would ask how it plays, but we all know that answer. :D

    Congrats!

    Cheers, guys!

    Play is fantastic!
    I've played quite a few R8s recently and I know that the neck sizes are all over the place.
    This R8's neck is on the slimmer side.
    I haven't weighed it yet, but it feels around a 1/2 lb heavier than my R9...around the 9 pound mark.

    She sounds great, but the R9 crushes it.
    My R9 is a freak of nature. I knew when I bought this R8 that she'd be an instant 2nd.

    This is what she's up against...some stiff competition.
    (I know, I know...what the h*ll's that BFG doing in the picture?)
