    I don't own the BOTB book but could someone help me match my 2015 R8 with one from the book?

    I do not own the BOTB book, but that seems a nice game to play :)

    Here's my historic R8 --> Clic Clic 2

    I'd be thankful to anybody that will look up for any correspondeance to a Beauty on the book ;)

    My R8 is very similar to 9-0918. The color, flame and even flecks look almost the same.

    I know I know, do I actually own 0 0593? Lol. To be fair, my r9 was a limited run of specially chosen tops and paint to match THIS specific guitar on this page of the book. They did well, huh?

    I don't have access to the book to compare mine to.
    Would someone care to tell me which guitar mine resembles?
    It is a 2002 R8.
