    Preview of a Dave Johnson R9 that will be listed on my site shortly. Dave used some special sauce on this one! It's one of the best burst finishes he's done. Looks so old and smokey. Very warm and amber but still has the greenish brown hue around the burst. Back color is killer also. The guitar is a 2009 and has the older, darker Mahogany that Gibson was using before switching to the lighter colored Fijian Mahogany. And that makes for a really vintage looking back color. 60-70 year old very dark and straight grain Brazilian board. Will be listed soon. Email or call if you want more details sooner.

    I'd be surprised if that isn't snagged by the end of the month.

    If there's such a thing as THE BEST, Dave's been the perennial winner for me.

    Very nice looking guitar. My question is, why is the binding pink?

    No part of the binding is even close to pink. It's amber. Maybe the color is off on whatever monitor you are using.
