WHELP just bought this one. Damn you all
I can’t justify another R9 under my roof, but if I could that would be the one. Beauty, congrats!!!
Where is this one now?
I believe I saw a posting of a guy on here that bought it. He saw it on Gibson's Instagram and contacted a dealer (maybe Wildwood?) and they managed to track it down and order it.
Very funky...I love it.
Not saying my 2018 R8 has objectively “the best” top, but I sure do love it and to me it’s certainly one of the best. But then again, I like quirky tops with lots of character and flecks and grain and peekaboo flame... not necessarily just over-the-top flame.
(No photoshop here, BTW... just straight off my crappy iPhone 6S. Some of these, particularly the ones taken indoors, could have used a little “lightening” because they were taken at night and the lighting in my house sucks for guitar pics, but I didn’t want to “cheat”. )
Yes. Its in my house , in my hands. right now.
That Gruhn Burst is stunning, but its not a 2018.
Gotcha. Maybe if we were going for the best top I saw this year category...
Please post some pics!
Damn that's trippy! Looks like dye dropped in water
2001 R9， with a bite mark after stopbar.
Remember this is best of 2018. Awesome guitar though.
Man, I really want to see more pictures of that guitar when you get it!
Of course! Here's one from a more normal angle that Curt sent me:
Well, this guitar may not be ultra-flamed, but I think it's definitely one of my favorites for the year. And I'm just a little partial to her because she's mine. 2018 R9 Brazilian with Antiquity Burst finish. I just love the streaks and the waviness and the fact that it looks completely different from every angle. Just took these on my phone - no doctoring.
My bad, I’ll see myself out.LoL
