    My 04 R9 reminds me of 9 1876 on p 93, but not as faded.

    Not in BOTB, but it is the Frehley burst compared to my aged / signed Frehley 59 TH reissue. The coloring on mine is actually very close to the burst; the coloring in the pic is off bc of the coloring on my phone's camera.

    Finally got my BOB..so my 2016 "R8" seems to be close to page 20, at least the top. Back color and tuners not so much. No complaints I love this guitar. Interesting though my 2012 R8 is Ice Tea with a flitch matched plain top and the lighter back. This one does not seem to have a match in the book, although it's is similar to a few of the 59's. :hmm:

    Quick glance this one popped up to me. Looks like might be the basis for the G0's too.

    The top on my Vintage Cherry TH59 could quite easily be mistaken for a '58 but is a close match to the '59 owned by Slash on Page 66 of BOTB.

    Not spot on but I when I bought this guitar I was drawn to the quality of the flame, and the striking resemblance it had to the cover photo on Beauty Of The Burst...

    After the red fades away more I think it will look strikingly similar. Love this type of flame myself!
