Photos of the R9 beauty: https://www.flickr.com/gp/150867215@N03/c03166 These mid-90 early R9s become more and more desirable especially with tops like that. Fretborad is very beautiful too, probably Madagascar rosewood. 9,5 lbs. Typical 59 neck which is exactly the same as real '59 Junior I used to own. Since the photos were shot it had a new Bartlett Nylon 6/6 nut and rewired to 50s specs by a professional. Original case in great condition. No COA in 1996 as you know. Can include some Gibson case candy from another historic. Would sell for $5k net to me. Could consider trades, but I'll be quite picky. Possibly interested in a Bartlett or vintage Gibson LP conversion. Also could look into high-end stratocaster replica, such as Danocaster + cash. Right now listed only here at MLP. If I decide to go evilbay/reverb, price would be higher. Feel free to PM me.
