    Picked up today, while out for a fun weekend. We're still in a hotel somewhere so I'll make some better pictures when we get home.

    Set up to perfection with my favourite 9-46 gauge strings. Rings like a bell and doesn't weigh a ton either :)

    Good deal being a NOS! So, being a 2013 it does have the yellow binding but other than that it's pretty much the same like they make them today :)

    Love it. I played a couple of those today, but I ended up buying a '58 reissue of the '14 vintage.

    Yes, 2013 is when they got the new colour, custom bukckers, bumblebees and the like.

    Here's some more pictures :)

    It has a neck very similar to my R8. Its beefy with round shoulders. I played another R7 a while back and that one was beefy with pretty square shoulders.

    I've always been fond of gold top Les Paul's, and yours is sweet!
