    Awesome trio!

    The figure in those ´96s is fantastic. Little bit to straight and pinstripe like for my taste but none the less really wonderful!
    What color is that supposed to be?

    I'm not sure actually, it looks like the finish between Honey Burst & Lemondrop, I think I need to e-mail to Gibson and check...

    Absolutely beautiful! I love the deeply-ridged flame pattern (mine has the same effect but I just can't photograph it - your pictures are superb!), and that colour is sublime. And it's GLOSS! Gorgeous. I haven't had the chance to handle an '07 to check out how good people say they are, but the '90s R9s I've seen are wonderful - great wood, a fantastic feel in the hand, a sense of quality, even if they aren't as accurate. I've saved a photo of this beauty as it represents my goal for my next guitar......

    Sweet! A Ice Tea/Honey Burst!

    Not really into the uniform straight flame but what a top!
