    Here's my V2 R0 that looks somewhat similar to the Howard Leese burst. :)

    I think I own the grand child of the 1959 burst 9 0291 (Vic Dapra's). Mine is a 2003 r9 with braz fret board. Each pic below alternates with the vintage burst, then my guitar. You be the judge!

    Pretty sure you've pointed this out a few hundred times already..yes they do look Exactly Alike-Amazing. But i think the Post is "match your Historic to a BOTB from the Book. By the way can you post several more pics of each to compare cuz i'm not sure they match on the bass side.:hmm: i think i see more mineral streaks on 9 0291

    My, aren't we being picky!?! :cool:

    And just for that, I think I'm just going to have to follow suit and post another non-BOTB vintage guitar comparison with a Historic. :laugh2:

    The vintage one's on the top; mine's on the bottom:

    I think.

    Frank, just an amazing guitar!! :slash: Great to see it again. Do you have more pics of it somewhere? Which pickups are in it, and do you have some soundbytes?

    I finally got my copy of BOTB today. Amazing guitars. I came across page 93 (9 1876) & thought my aged Page #1 resembled it a little. Turns out that guitar is also the one on the cover.

    The cover burst, 9 1876, versus my 2009 VOS R9 in iced tea; the sun makes the color more reddish....
