    To me the truss rod cover seems to be spaced higher above the nut than I have seen on other R7s. Thinking about buying it but compared to other R7 pictures there seems to be a lot of space between the cover and the nut. Maybe its okay but wanted to ask.

    You're splitting hairs. Looks fine.

    Thanks. Just wanted to make sure since there is no COA. I will look for the R7 stamp inside the control cavity as well.

    Every guitar has slight differences. If you like the way it plays & sounds. Thats all that matters.

    Looks to be about the same as on my R8.

    Maybe a tiny bit higher (like couple of thousandths) than where the TRC sits on my R7 but still looks good to me

    Probably contains a little more tone.
